Enhanced Software Design for Boosted Continuous Software Delivery


Ning Luo and Yue Xiong, Intel Asia-Pacific Research & Development Ltd, China


Engineering efficiency in continuous software delivery can be impacted by multiple factors. In this paper, citing one ultra-large-scale software - Intel Media Driver as an example, we analyse the hotspots impacting the engineering efficiency in continuous software delivery, their challenges to our software design and the experiences on software delivery efficiency boost against the targeted design enhancements. We expect the identified hotspots can help more researchers to form the corresponding research agendas and the experiences shared can help following practitioners to apply similar enhancements.
