Description & Coverage
Description:

Recently, rapid and fundamental advances in computing technologies have been driving the role and scope of software systems to a new level. A number of new types of software systems are emerging, among which service based systems, cloud computing, pervasive computing, and Internet of Things are eminent examples. These systems have imposed new challenges on their design, development, testing and maintenance, and are demanding for new appropriate approaches and tools.

Advanced Design Approaches to Emerging Software Systems: Principles, Methodology and Tools provides relevant theoretical frameworks and the latest empirical research findings in the area. This book will help to clarify the present chaotic and confusing literature of the current state of the art and knowledge in the areas of the design and engineering of the many emerging software systems. This book also facilitates the exchange and evolution of software engineering advances among multiple disciplines, research, industry, and user communities.

Coverage:

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Cloud Computing Systems
  • Collaborative systems
  • Developing Applications
  • Event based Applications
  • Information Dispersal Techniques
  • Internet of Things
  • Interoperable Smart Spaces
  • Pervasive Computing Systems
  • Service Based Systems
  • System evolution
