The complexity of device software development is rapidly increasing. The average device now has more than one million lines of code — and that number is doubling every two years. Companies across all vertical industries are looking to device software to not only address these complexities but to help differentiate themselves and drive innovation. Device Software Optimization (DSO) is forever changing the way companies do business. By providing more choices, tighter product integration and increased flexibility, DSO is liberating not only developers but CEOs, customers and partners from the constraints of traditional device development.

Join industry analysts, thought leaders, technical evangelists, Wind River partners and customers to learn how to capitalize on the innovative and market-leading products and services from Wind River and its partners to develop and run device software faster, better, at lower cost, and more reliably.
