the availability of valuable new research that analyzes
the Return On Investment (ROI) of different middleware
approaches. I'm happy to report that href="http://www.rti.com/products/dds/index.html">RTI Data
Distribution Service outperformed both commercial and
in-house alternatives in nearly every category EMF measured.
Given this, it is not surprising that EMF also found RTI was the
most widely used embedded middleware supplier.
This broad-based research provides the first independent
quantification of the reduction in time, cost and risk you can
expect from RTI Data Distribution Service. Findings
Up to 45% Lower Total Cost of
Development: The average cost of application
development was substantial for projects using internally
developed "Roll-Your-Own" (RYO) middleware
($1.61M) and most commercial solutions ($1.34M); however,
projects using RTI middleware enjoyed much lower costs
Up to 47% Lower Cost
Overrun: The average cost overrun was similar for
projects using RYO (11.3%) and most commercial middleware
(10.1%). Projects using RTI finished closest to expected cost
Costs: In projects where the cost of testing was
less than 30 percent of the total development cost, RYO (72.5%)
showed an advantage over commercial (65.5%) middleware. Projects
using RTI's commercial middleware, however, had testing
costs less than 30 percent of the total development cost 84.6% of
Greater Probability of Meeting
Design Requirements: Final design outcomes using
commercial middleware in general, and RTI in particular, were
much closer to pre-design expectations than RYO developments for
performance, functionality, features and
report was based on independent research and a comprehensive
survey of developers conducted by href="http://www.embeddedforecast.com/analystprofile.php">Dr.
