Safer Cars Faster with Continuous Delivery | @ThingsExpo #IoT #M2M #DevOps

The automotive industry has always been bound by strict safety regulatory certifications and compliance rules

As smart cars, pre-loaded with millions of lines of code, are becoming the norm in the automotive industry, the topic of safety has come to the forefront of the conversation in a big way. Most consumers remember several large-scale recalls in the past few years, and it's left some a bit wary of software glitches that could affect driver safety.

The automotive industry has always been bound by strict safety regulatory certifications and compliance rules, designed to ensure the safety of the vehicle and the software embedded in it. However, despite industry efforts to put best practices in place, the rate of issues and software failures has been increasing.

In his recent article for Automotive World, Andreas Dharmawan discusses the key regulations and compliance guidelines that the automotive industry is required to meet:

  1. MISRA (Motor Industry Software Reliability Association) - aiming to facilitate code safety, portability and reliability in the context of embedded systems.
  2. ISO26262 - a functional safety standard that guides automotive development phases, covering specification, design, implementation, integration, verification, and production release.
  3. SPICE (ISO/IEC 15504) - a set of technical standards for software development process and related business management functions.

While the necessary standards and guidelines are available, their implementations and tracking are spotty and incomplete. For each one of the the above guidelines, Andrea outlines the day-to-day challenges faced by both automakers and suppliers when trying to implement and enforce safety and security practices in order to meet these regulations. He then explains how Continuous Delivery and automation solutions are helping automotive manufacturers address these challenges while improving the overall quality of the vehicle and its underlying software and electronics system.

DevOpsSUMMIT at CloudEXPO, to be held June 25-26, 2019 at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA – announces that its Call for Papers is open. Born out of proven success in agile development, cloud computing, and process automation, DevOps is a macro trend you cannot afford to miss. From showcase success stories from early adopters and web-scale businesses, DevOps is expanding to organizations of all sizes, including the world's largest enterprises – and delivering real results. Among the proven benefits, DevOps is correlated with 20% faster time-to-market, 22% improvement in quality, and 18% reduction in dev and ops costs, according to research firm Vanson-Bourne. It is changing the way IT works, how businesses interact with customers, and how organizations are buying, building, and delivering software.
The benefits of automated cloud deployments for speed, reliability and security are undeniable. The cornerstone of this approach, immutable deployment, promotes the idea of continuously rolling safe, stable images instead of trying to keep up with managing a fixed pool of virtual or physical machines. In this talk, we'll explore the immutable infrastructure pattern and how to use continuous deployment and continuous integration (CI/CD) process to build and manage server images for any platform. Then we'll show how automate deploying these images quickly and reliability with open DevOps tools like Terraform and Digital Rebar. Not only is this approach fast, it's also more secure and robust for operators. If you are running infrastructure, this talk will change how you think about your job in profound ways.
In today's always-on world, customer expectations have changed. Competitive differentiation is delivered through rapid software innovations, the ability to respond to issues quickly and by releasing high-quality code with minimal interruptions. DevOps isn't some far off goal; it's methodologies and practices are a response to this demand. The demand to go faster. The demand for more uptime. The demand to innovate. In this keynote, we will cover the Nutanix Developer Stack. Built from the foundation of software-defined infrastructure, Nutanix has rapidly expanded into full application lifecycle management across any infrastructure or cloud .Join us as we delve into how the Nutanix Developer Stack makes it easy to build hybrid cloud applications by weaving DBaaS, micro segmentation, event driven lifecycle operations, and both financial and cloud governance together into a single unified st...
