LabVIEW 2017 debuts some new capabilities designed to drastically simplify the development, deployment, and management of distributed systems. We're continuing to streamline complex system design with an open, software-centric platform.
“I'd like to think that if actual engineers were involved in more projects, we wouldn't live in a world where it's a given that most websites, applications, apps, and embedded systems are poorly designed, overly buggy, and insecure. And though one would like to imagine that all safety-critical systems, at least, are created under the aegis of engineers and engineering principles, I have my doubts.”
This is one of the reasons we exist. We supply an integrated software-based platform that enables engineers to do exactly what Mr. Dunn states. Our choice in this endeavor isn’t to explore a path where engineers needed to become software developers. Instead, our mission is to create an engineering system design tool that empowers engineers to build world-class, complex, mission-critical, software based systems.
LabVIEW is at the core of our engineering platform, and when coupled with our modular hardware platforms, becomes a gateway to innovation that engineers the world over are using to make products safer, get to market faster, and accomplish amazing things.
LabVIEW simplifies the development of complex engineering applications. It’s native graphical language uses a concept called dataflow to define the parameters of execution and combines its native language with an open interface that integrates code from other software approaches. With this, we ensure that engineers can choose the approach they’re most familiar with for any individual component of the application.
We’ve invested 30 years into LabVIEW, making it one of the most productive tools on the planet. And we’re excited to share that the best is yet to come.
