Developing embedded software is more complicated than ever, with ever-increasing files, teams, and dependencies.

It takes a robust data management system to handle development at this scale — something that can version massive quantities of large files and metadata, streamline the flow of changes across many branches and users, and support growing, globally distributed teams.

Legacy tools like Subversion and ClearCase are not up for the task. Their branching systems are slow and error-prone, they cannot handle large files, and they lack security.

In this on-demand webinar, Perforce CTO Brad Hart and Senior Director of Sales Engineering Gerhard Krüger dive into 5 reasons it’s time for embedded development teams to migrate from their legacy data management system to a scalable, future-proof solution. Watch now to learn: 

  • Why companies hold onto their legacy data management solutions: Learn the reasons many organizations are hesitant to switch systems — and how those reasons impede development in the long run.
  • How to tell it’s time to modernize your data management infrastructure: Learn the signs your DM may no longer be able to support your organization’s development, from lags, to file conflicts, to lack of upgrades.
  • What to look for in a data management solution: Learn what capabilities and features, from branching systems to granular security, a modern data management tool needs in order to support embedded development, now and in the future.
