Software Acumen Overview

Software Acumen works with software developers to help them ship more products, faster, cheaper and more reliably.  
We provide a range of specialist tools and services to allow organisations developing software to establish and operate Software Product Lines - much like assembly lines for software systems. (You may know them as Software Factories).

Software Product Lines are applicable to organisations developing multiple similar software systems which are each differentiated in some defined way e.g. through customisation for each customer, through tailoring for a specific locale or set of legal or environmental regulations, because of specific device characteristics etc.

There are many published case studies of successful Product Line adoption. The benefits these studies mention typically include:

  • Faster time-to-market
  • The ability to create more products and to release products more frequently
  • The ability to enter related markets quickly and inexpensively
  • Major productivity gains
  • Improved product quality
  • Support for mass customisation
  • Reduced product development costs

We also distribute and support pure::variants, a specialist tool for managing software product line development.

  • UML vs. Domain-Specific Languages

    18-20 May 2007 in Cambridge, United Kingdom

    Standardised languages such as UML have made software modelling a mainstream activity. However, proponents of domain-specific languages, argue that designing a modelling language specifically for a particular domain allows clearer and more precise models than using a standard language. An expert panel considers which is the best approach.
