In Connected Systems, the Software Development Lifecycle lasts a Lifetime

Until recently, the software development lifecycle generally ended at product release. Connectivity, however, has extended that development lifecycle to the lifetime of the product or as long as it’s in the field. Unlike isolated systems, the software requirements for products such as connected cars can change at any time, whenever changes occur in the product’s connected environment or a new security vulnerability is discovered.
Each newly discovered vulnerability implies a changed or new requirement that requires an immediate response. Revised code must then undergo static analysis and all impacted unit and integration tests need to be re-run (regression tested).
