Software development is experiencing a paradigm shift from the more traditional bespoke or market-driven model to a software platform model that uses open innovation within an ecosystem of third party extensions and integrations to create value for a much larger customer market. This talk describes insights from a recent study from two two service software platform ecosystems. In particular, it provides a discussion of (1) the co-innovation process that takes place within such ecosystems and (2) software engineering challenges and tradeoffs experienced as a direct consequence of openness in these ecosystems.

Bio: Daniela Damian is a Professor of Software Engineering in University of Victoriaâ€TMs Department of Computer Science, in Canada, where she leads research in the Software Engineering Global interAction Laboratory (SEGAL). Her research interests include Empirical Software Engineering, Requirements Engineering, Computer-Supported Cooperative Work and more recently software ecosystems. Her recent work has studied the developersâ€TM socio-technical coordination in large, geographically distributed software projects, as well as stakeholder management in large software ecosystems. Daniela has served on the program committee boards of several software engineering conferences. She is currently serving on the editorial boards of Transactions on Software Engineering, the Journal of Requirements Engineering, is the Requirements Engineering Area Editor for the Journal of Empirical Software Engineering, and the Human Aspects Area Editor for the Journal of Software and Systems. She will be ICSE 2022 Program Co-Chair.

This talk is part of the New Zealand Software Innovation Seminar (SI^NZ) Series:
