The Future of Software Engineering - as Seen with SEMAT Glasses

Presentation @ Essence in Practice: A Revolution in Software Engineering

Ivar Jacobson, Founder, Ivar Jacobson International

The first step of the SEMAT community has been reached: a common ground, a kernel, a foundation including universal elements for all software development endeavors has been created in the form of the Essence standard. What comes next? Existing successful practices will be translated into the Essence superlight format and practice libraries will be built. This work has already started but much more is planned for the future. New (and old) methods will be composed from reusable proven practices, for instance practices focusing on doing instead of describing; scaling to large systems of systems and large programs of programs; used to form method starter packs for new domains such as Internet of Things; transforming organizations from primarily relying on software development as a craft to relying on it as an engineering discipline.
