3 MOBILE APPLICATION SOFTWARE – THE LIMITATION OF A GENERATION. THE GENERATION PHILOSOPHY: Digital Natives THE GENERATION PHILOSOPHY: Digital Natives ISPON President Speaks: Every Generation will have to codify its Software destiny! Today Software Technology can simply be defined as the cement that holds the world together and no nation will succeed without earning and mastering its development, application and service dynamics. Thanks to advances in Information Technology. One can therefore rightly state that Software has become – not only the vehicle – but the centre of gravity of humanitys quest for knowledge development and an information society. ISPON is deeply involved, concerned, committed and constructively dedicated to ensuring that Software – perhaps our last development hope this century, does not slip us by. We all have a duty to develop and sustain the Nigerian Software identity as a cultural heritage.

4 MOBILE APPLICATION SOFTWARE – THE LIMITATION OF A GENERATION? MOBILE APPLICATION SOFTWARE – THE LIMITATION OF A GENERATION? OVERVIEW: Software is undoubtedly the backbone to 21 st century national security. The crux of this presentation is based on the conceptual principle that with regards to information technology and systems, we cannot manage what we cannot measure. Today, the quantum challenges, needs and response aspirations for our national development and security cannot be effectively determined, scaled, managed and/or measured without a dynamic National Roadmap and intelligent Database System. According to Philip Zelikow Executive Director of 9/11 Commission and now a Professor at the University of Virginia, USA, the most significant lessons learned from the 9/11 catastrophe is: The United States of America would have done, before the 9/11 saga, most of the things (i.e: reactionary measures taken) that we did post 9/11! A valid example is the establishment of the Homeland Security Institutional framework with its complex, colossal, multi-dimensional and highly-critical information infrastructure and expansive Database systems on Cybersecurity and Terrorism.

5 Software Developers: What do they do? Software developers are the creative minds behind computer programs. Some develop the applications that allow people to do specific tasks on a computer or other device. Others develop the underlying systems that run the devices or control networks. Employment of software developers is projected to grow 30 percent from 2010 to 2020, much faster than the average for all occupations. The main reason for the rapid growth is a large increase in the demand for computer software.

6 MOBILE APPLICATION SOFTWARE – THE LIMITATION OF A GENERATION? OVERVIEW OF ORIGIN, HISTORY AND PROCESSES OF SOFTWARE In its modest beginning 50 years ago, there are a number of areas where the evolution of software engineering is notable: In the 1940s, 1950s, and 1960s, men often filled the more prestigious and better paying hardware engineering roles, but often delegated the writing of software to women. Ada lovelace, Grace Hopper, Jamie Fenton and many other unsung women filled many programming jobs during the first several decades of software engineering.hardwareengineeringwomenAda lovelace, Grace HopperJamie Fentonprogrammingjobs Emergence as a profession: By the early 1980s, software engineering had already emerged as a bona fide profession, to stand beside computer science and traditional engineering. Today, many fewer women work in software engineering than in other professions, a situation whose cause is not clearly identified. – Wikipedia.

7 MOBILE APPLICATION SOFTWARE – THE LIMITATION OF A GENERATION. OVERVIEW OF ORIGIN, HISTORY AND PROCESS OF SOFTWARE Mobile application development: Is the process by which APPLICATION SOFTWARE is developed for low-power handheld devices, such as personal digital assistances (PDAs), Enterprise Digital Assistants (EDAs) or Mobile Phones and recently iPod. These Mobile applications: Can be pre-installed on phones during manufacturing, downloaded by customers from various Platforms of Mobile Software Distributor, or delivered as web applications using server-side or client-side processing (e.g. JavaScript) to provide an "application- like" experience within a Web browser.

8 MOBILE APPLICATION SOFTWARE – THE LIMITATION OF A GENERATION. THE FUTURE CODES – NANO TECHNOLOGIES The World has gone Nano and AI Software is on the rise Processes: Processes have become a big chunk of software engineering and are hailed for their potential to improve software. However, its proprietary nature have come under sharp criticism for their potential to monopolize the market. Cost of hardware: The relative cost of software versus hardware has changed substantially over the last 50 years. Enter the Mobile Generation! Mobile Apps Platform

9 MOBILE APPLICATION SOFTWARE – THE LIMITATION OF A GENERATION! SOFTWARE – THE NEW MOBILE GENERATION Since Netscape's public offering in 1995, more than 6,500 pure Internet companies have raised venture capital. But only 18 are worth more than $1 billion. Thirty years after the software revolution started, only 12 of the Fortune 500 Companies in America are pure software companies. Twelve out of 500 isn't a revolution at all; it's the Massachusetts delegation to the House of Representatives. CRITICAL ISSUES OF SOFTWARE Software matters more than that. As Netscape founder Marc Andreesen observed in his 2011 essay, "Why Software Is Eating the World software is probably the most powerful lever for change the world has ever seen.software is probably the most powerful lever for change We just have to look at it the right way. The way Mr. Andreesen sees it, the world is becoming increasingly virtual

10 MOBILE APPLICATION SOFTWARE – THE LIMITATION OF A GENERATION. TIMELINE – CALENDAR OPPORTUNITIES (BILL JOY of UNIX, BILL GATES & STEVE JOBS) THE 10,000 SKILL THEORY Who Will Win The Software Race? So whats easier to do? Is it easier for a virtual company to get real or the other way around? Which companies will win the next 20 years, the new virtual ones or the old real ones? To answer this question, consider another example. What was harder for Google: spending a decade to create an online map of every road and alley? Or strapping that map onto a car that drives itself? It was of course, harder to build the map. Does this mean that 20 years from now, a company like Google might be a better auto manufacturer than a company like General Motors?

12 Countries Currently Using or Considered for Global Software Development Substantial numbers of companies are also looking to Eastern Europe (29%) and China (21%) as locations for global development. The high proportion of companies looking to these regions for software development reflects the strong emphasis, particularly in China, in developing strong technical skills among its population. India ………………………………………………………………………………42% Eastern Europe/Russia …………………………………………………..19% China ……………………………………………………………………………..13% Others…………………………………………………………………………....12% Canada ……………………………………………………………………………..5% Philippines ………………………………………………………………………..3% Vietnam …………………………………………………………………………….2% Mexico ………………………………………………………………………………2% Unaccounted………………………………………………………………………1%
