Abstract:

Overview Recent trends in open architecture OA software systems. Emerging challenges in achieving Better Buying Power BBP via OA software systems for Webbased and Mobile devices. New practices to realize cost-effective acquisition of OA software systems. Conclusions Our research identifies how new Webmobile software component technologies, IP and security requirements, and new business models interact to drive-down or drive-up acquisition costs. Managing acquisition costs for OA Webmobile software components will be demanding. Acquisition workforce will need automated assistance, else acquisition process costs will dominate development costs for OA Webmobile software components New technical risks for component-based OA software systems can dilute the cost-effectiveness of BBP efforts. Need RD leading to automated systems SORMS that can model and analyze OA system IP licenses and cybersecurity requirements. SORMS will empower the acquisition workforce, and Identify and manage cost-effectiveness trade-offs.
