Common questions when this happens are: Shall we phase out one of the systems and develop another? Or is it possible to take parts from the different systems and create a new? A new study from Mälardalen University in Sweden offers help to future organizations to avoid pitfalls like these.
Rikard Land, Departement of Computer Science and Electronics at Mälardalen University, defends his thesis “How to Succeed with In-House Software Systems Integration and Merge – Observations concerning Architecture and Process” on the 15th of September.
In the thesis Land presents two trends: partly an increased use of software both in products and as a support for different activities, partly the constant organizational changes in society of today. Land recognise a problem in these trends; it is common that no one in the new organization has knowledge about more than one of the existing systems well, neither as an user, nor as an architect.
Land presents studies of organizations in this kind of situation and presents advices for how to organize an evaluation process. He also presents which aspects are most important to evaluate and which work procedures are most effective. The focus of Land’s thesis is the architecture of the software, that is its fundamental choice of structure, technologies and computer model.
The public defence of the thesis takes place on Friday the 15th of September in the Zeta hall of Mälardalen University, 10:00.

On the way to an intelligent laboratory, physicists from Innsbruck and Vienna present an artificial agent that autonomously designs quantum experiments. In initial experiments, the system has independently (re)discovered experimental techniques that are nowadays standard in modern quantum optical laboratories. This shows how machines could play a more creative role in research in the future.
We carry smartphones in our pockets, the streets are dotted with semi-autonomous cars, but in the research laboratory experiments are still being designed by...

For the first time, scientists have precisely measured the effective electrical charge of a single molecule in solution. This fundamental insight of an SNSF Professor could also pave the way for future medical diagnostics.
Electrical charge is one of the key properties that allows molecules to interact. Life itself depends on this phenomenon: many biological processes involve...
At the JEC World Composite Show in Paris in March 2018, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT will be focusing on the latest trends and innovations in laser machining of composites. Among other things, researchers at the booth shared with the Aachen Center for Integrative Lightweight Production (AZL) will demonstrate how lasers can be used for joining, structuring, cutting and drilling composite materials.
No other industry has attracted as much public attention to composite materials as the automotive industry, which along with the aerospace industry is a driver...
Scientists at Tokyo Institute of Technology (Tokyo Tech) and Tohoku University have developed high-quality GFO epitaxial films and systematically investigated their ferroelectric and ferromagnetic properties. They also demonstrated the room-temperature magnetocapacitance effects of these GFO thin films.
Multiferroic materials show magnetically driven ferroelectricity. They are attracting increasing attention because of their fascinating properties such as...
