In the computersystems industry, roughly between the years 1950 and 1980, the advances in technology were largely aimed at high-end or enterprise-class hardware.For the next 30 years, the personal computing industry was the arena in which technological advances were applied. For the past couple years, technological trailblazing has been led by consumer electronics, such as smartphones, tablets, and game consoles.Accordngly, as the user base has widened, design, validation, and quality assurance practice must be strengthened. At the same time, the difficulties in making sure systems are correct are increasingly complex and spread across all levels, including that of application development.This article examines the difficulties presented by the industry's essentially having cornered itself such that there is little room for error.
