CLEVELAND -- CLEVELAND, March 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Flashline(R) today announced that Founder and CEO Charles Stack will participate on a panel that addresses software reuse at the Software Development Conference and Expo on March 26, 2003 at the Santa Clara Convention Center.
Stack joins a panel of distinguished industry experts to discuss the productivity and efficiency benefits gained through reuse, and how organizations should address technological, cultural and organizational issues to succeed. Stack's position on treating software as a strategic asset is based upon his experience working with large organizations to improve productivity through the reuse of software assets including components, Web services, frameworks, and models. Dr. Martin Griss, author, reuse expert, and member of the Flashline Software Development Productivity Council, and Sam Patterson, CEO of ComponentSource, join Stack on the panel. David Quigley, executive director of the Component Vendor Consortium, will serve as the moderator.
"We brought together some of the most knowledgeable leaders in the area of software reuse who will focus on why, after over 30 years of significant research and debate, software reuse has become one of the primary mechanisms for improving software development," said David Quigley. "The panelists will discuss approaches for incremental implementation, real-world experiences and tips to help attendees understand the 'how and why' of reuse as an important element in an organization's development strategy. Stack brings a unique perspective on software asset reuse -- taking an enterprise-wide view of assets beyond components, and we are delighted to have him as a panelist."
