November 2021 Book

The SEI led the community in creating this multi-year research and development vision and roadmap for engineering next-generation software-reliant systems.

Abstract

Software is vital to our country’s global competitiveness, innovation, and national security. It also ensures our modern standard of living and enables continued advances in defense, infrastructure, healthcare, commerce, education, and entertainment. As part of its work as a federally funded research and development center (FFRDC) focused on applied research to improve the practice of software engineering, the Carnegie Mellon University Software Engineering Institute led the community in creating this multi-year research and development vision and roadmap for engineering next-generation software-reliant systems.
