Over the last year, the Aerospace and Defense segment has begun to shift and change how they are creating new systems and technology. According to Accenture Aerospace Defense Technology Vision 2022, 100% of aerospace and defense executives agree that emerging technologies are enabling their organization to have a broader and more ambitious vision.

A combination of digital transformation and modern software development methods and tools are advancing future aerospace & defense systems, as well as, commercial systems. Development methods such as DevSecOps with modern development cloud-native platforms and methods are helping A&D systems to be developed faster, easier and with more security and safety functions to be built-in. Software technology such as container technology, simulation, CI/CD, over-the-air updates and more are resulting in better, flexible and functioning systems that can be advanced and updated as often as needed instead of rarely.
