Ultra-Large-Scale Systems: The Software Challenge of the Future


Software Engineering Institute



Ultra-Large-Scale Systems: The Software Challenge of the Future is the product of a 12-month study of ultra-large-scale (ULS) systems software. The study brought together experts in software and other fields to answer a question: "Given the issues with today's software engineering, how can we build the systems of the future that are likely to have billions of lines of code?" The report details a broad, multi-disciplinary research agenda for developing the ultra-large-scale systems of the future.
