Philippe Letellier, born in 1957, is Engineer from ENSEM Nancy and Doctor in computer Science from Paris XI Orsay. In 2000 he obtains an executive MBA from HEC/CPA to acquire a double culture technology and business

Philippe Letellier, has a long industrial experience (25 years) with start up and international companies like what is now Thomson and Thales. His last position was General manager of the French research center of Thomson. His main involvement has been in software development for interactive image system and in R&D Management. Amongst others, he was responsible for the definition of strategic views and participate to the definition of the WW Thomson Research Program. He was also strongly involved in standardization and developed the patent production.

Since 2006 he has been Deputy Research Director at the Institut TELECOM, where he is responsible for valorization, technology transfer and partnerships. In this role he participates to the building of the innovation ecosystem connecting international companies, SMEs and academic world around open innovation and research used as a business development tool.

Per 1 September 2008 Philippe Letellier is Vice-Chairman of ITEA 2.

Ole Hammer

Responsibility: Primary responsibility since 1997 is directing the quality function for R&D and portfolio management. The job also involves process and productivity optimization, focus on the essential product attributes and regulatory compliance.

Background: B. Sc. from Danish Engineering Academy in Electronics & Mechanical Engineering in 1980. Before joining Motorola in 1981 Ole served at the Danish Defence Research Establishment. He has experience from multiple areas of land mobile radio product development including products for special communication applications analogue cell phones professional mobile and portable radio platforms and accessories including a two year assignment in USA turnkey radio system solutions Tetra and APCO25 systems (European and American standards for Public Safety radio communication). Continued education includes training as: ISO lead auditor, CMMI SCAMPI B&C lead appraiser.


New Trends in Software Engineering in Europe, ITEA2 roadmap

ITEA2 is a EUREKA Cluster programme dedicated to R&D projects focused on software-intensive systems and services. ITEA2 is an industrial bottom-up programme, it is the responsibility of the companies involved to define the research orientations for each project. Nevertheless, thanks to the editing team composed of 17 very high skill experts representing major European industry led by former ITEA vice chairman Jean-Pierre Lacotte, ITEA2 has published beginning of this year its third Roadmap describing the different research directions covered by the ITEA2 programme. This presentation will give you a global view of technical domains covered by ITEA2 and will focus more specifically on the Software engineering trends useful to support all these future innovations in software intensive systems and services.

This Roadmap modelize the software intensive system surrounding world by spliting applications and services in five domains : Me – person, device or software, identity, profile and context awareness; Group – ubiquity, self-organisation, sharing and interacting with rich multimedia content; Society – privacy, virtualisation, scalability, dependability and interoperability; Services, Systems and Software Creation – software as a service (SaS), complexity, composition, open source, development and testing productivity; and Infrastructures and Basic Services – convergence of IT and telecommunications, service- or web-oriented architecture (SOA/WOA), interoperable 3D worlds, dynamic access anywhere and anytime, and content and knowledge as key resources.

To build such applications and services domains basic Technologies are requested and should be in sync with some external input called “rendez-vous” . Those basic technologies are also clusterized into four basic categories: Content and knowledge – intelligent sensing, confidence, automating the building of trustable knowledge from multitudes of sources, efficient retrieving of appropriate content, managing in the long term (maintenance); Network and computing – ubiquitous interoperable heterogeneous infrastructures, increased bandwidth, quality, range and mobility support, pervasive computing, ambient and opportunistic networks, global energy management, security, privacy, trust and dependability, agility, dynamism, self-optimisation, self-learning, semantics handling and context-aware services, multi-provider dynamic services, distributed autonomous agents, virtualisation and service-oriented technologies; Interaction – interaction with everyday objects, delegate, system learning and safety; Engineering – software/hardware co-design, open and dynamic product lines, co-operation across company borders; and some proposed vision for possible technologies of the future – quantum computing, low energy computing, bio systems and brain simulation.

Furthermore, the team concludes that the world could be closer and closer to the limits of Moore’s law, which leads to new programming models: parallel with multi- and many-cores.

We were used to developing rather large systems but the future is in systems of systems to provide infrastructure and services fulfilling ‘ilities’. The main requirements to be solved are: evolution, scalability, maintenance and long life cycles, as well as ubiquity, scalability, interoperability and self-adaptive connectivity, without forgetting certification and validation of very large systems. These systems of systems have a tremendous number of interacting subsystems mixing up complex embedded systems and web-based services in the ‘Web of objects’, which will have to be dynamically configured on the field. This dynamism means autonomic systems. Such complexity is a critical design issue to be solved.

The quality in knowing what we don't know

The quality in knowing what we don’t know can contribute in many areas of product and software development including outsourcing. As a measure of quality, product reliability is critical to the customer and in turn the business. Here we will discuss practicable approaches to applying “Knowing what we do know” as a means to quantitative study and management of the operational behavior of software-based systems with respect to user requirements concerning reliability. The Software Reliability Engineering, SRE, practices covered are methods and tools used to establish a level of confidence of software based systems performing their intended function over time in active use, while the system is still under test. Measuring the reliability growth of the product under test yields a quantitative insight to the reliability of the product enabling a data driven decision of whether or not the product is “ready” for release.
