The Embedded Software Market Intelligence Program: 2009 Service Year Track 2

Volume 1: Operating Systems – Segmented data based on respondents citing the use of commercial operating systems, in-house developed operating systems, open source operating systems, no formal operating systems, and Linux operating systems within the target embedded system on the current project

Volume 2: Development Tools – Segmented data based on respondents citing the use of software and system modeling tools, automated test, requirements management, and source/change management tools on the current project

Volume 3: Vertical Markets – Segmented data based on respondents citing projects within the automotive, consumer electronics, industrial automation, medical, military/aerospace, mobile phones, and telecom/datacom markets

Volume 4: Regional – Segmented data based on respondents located within the Americas, EMEA, and Asia- Pacific regions

Volume 5: Processor Architecture – Segmented data based on respondents citing the use of 8-bit, 16-bit, and 32-bit MCU/MPU, DSP, FPGA, SoC, X86, ARM, PPC, Single Processor, and Multi-processor/core on the current project 

Volume 6: Embedded System Engineer Type – Segmented data based on respondents citing their primary roles program managers, software engineers, hardware engineers, system architect/engineers, algorithm developers/functional experts, and test/verification/validation engineers


• In-depth analysis of the global market opportunity for embedded software and tools, with detailed market definitions and trend analysis
• Market estimates and forecasts for embedded software and tools, including segmentations by geographic region, vertical market, product/services mix, and leading vendor
• Embedded system engineers’ current and future requirements and preferences for various technologies, feature sets, vendors, and solution sources
• Analysis of the structure of the embedded software supplier community, including leading and emerging supplier market share, position, direction and profiles
• Discussion of key issues, forces and trends, impacted by current economic conditions and changes in vertical market business model requirements


• Market Segmentation and Definition: Definition of market segments, target customers, and competing solutions are critical to building accurate sizing estimates, forecasts, supplier position and shares, and customer requirements.
• Market Sizing and Forecasts: Models based on supplier shipments, user budget analysis, recent installations, and future purchasing plans. Other key inputs include supplier forecasts of future growth rates, historical data, and economic outlook data.
• Data Verification: Via primary and secondary research within the same target communities and companies. Verification includes conducting supplemental interviews with multiple personnel at target firms, crosschecking with target firm channels and partners, requesting estimates from competing firms, and reviewing historical performance.
• Supplier Share and Position: Derived directly from structured, in-depth interviews of leading and emerging suppliers of embedded software and tools, with specific emphasis placed on current and projected shipments in combination with VDC’s data repository.
• Customer and Channel Requirements and Preferences: Focused on customer and channel partner priorities driving consideration. Topics include a range of product and supplier selection criteria. We will explore current and future preferences for various technologies, feature sets, suppliers and sources of supply.    

This track includes in-depth, table-driven statistics of embedded system engineering requirements, preferences, and trends across a variety of market segments, based on VDC Research’s 2009 Embedded System Engineering Survey. Track 2 volumes will be delivered as PDF Word files with accompanying Excel files were applicable. All volumes within Track 2 will include the following types of data:

Project Data
Including analysis of survey data related to project type, project length, number of engineers per project, outsourcing habits, engineering project costs, processor architecture, software use, language use, design methodologies, and other project related questions Experiences, Preferences, and Trends Data Including analysis of survey data related to software acquisition habits, selection criteria, solution satisfaction, spend on tools, as well as opinions and expectations about emerging technology trends such as virtualization, multi-core, and others

Engineer Data
Including analysis of survey data related to respondents geographic location, age, years developing embedded systems, length of time at current company, different types of work environments, average salary, and other data
