The Future – what will happen in 5-10 years? Ivar talks about how it is now possible to leverage existing ideas through modern platforms and tools, that software needs to be built for people and how standards for both platforms and frameworks will make it
easier to work together.
Dr. Ivar Jacobson is a father of components and component architecture, use cases, the Unified Modeling Language and the Rational Unified Process. He has contributed to modern business modeling and aspect-oriented software development. Lately he has been working on a smarter way to deal with methods and tools in a superlight and agile way. He has developed a practice concept that is now being adopted by both developers and tool vendors. Right now he is working with a team of software leaders with the mission to build a widely-adopted, strong foundation under software engineering, tentatively called Methods Need Theory.
He is the principal author of six influential and best-selling books.
