DevOps practices rely on fast, successive iterations based on collaborative teams using continuous feedback. By enabling development and operations to work better together, you can frequently deliver and deploy applications and services on demand. This is allowing businesses to rapidly respond to changing customer needs, competitive challenges, and new strategic opportunities. The bottom line: DevOps is proving very good for business. Hampered by Hardware Unfortunately, many embedded software development teams have been watching the DevOps revolution from the sidelines. Unlike their counterparts who develop for websites, desktop applications, or other software-based platforms, embedded developers build software directly for hardware. And that has posed a host of challenges. But Wind River ® Simics ® offers a new virtual hardware development environment that helps embedded software teams embrace the DevOps. Simics is a virtual software environment that simulates your hardware system. It provides an accessible, flexible, and collaborative development platform for helping your organization adopt DevOps practices. By freeing embedded software teams from the constraints of physical hardware and providing a common, collaborative development platform, Simics catalyzes operational improvements, product innovations, and bottom-line efficiencies to bring critical competitive advantages to your organization. SOLUTION BRIEF With Simics, organizations can reap the business benefits of progressive development methods to create and deliver better software, faster. Wind River Simics Brings DevOps to Embedded Software The Challenge An agile team requires testing and automation in its DevOps process and hardware availability can be a bottleneck.
