Like many software developers who need a reliable RTOS from a vendor who is here to stay, you may be wondering about the long term viability of VxWorks. In this webinar, we will take a look at some of the risks that VxWorks-based projects may be faced with and suggest how QNX Software Systems could address those concerns. Leo Forget, product manager, along with Patrick Shelly, field application engineer, will outline how a logical and modular migration plan could be your best option. He will cover the phases of migration from assessment to porting and optimization, bearing in mind the need to minimize the cost and effort of the porting process. Join us and we will give you something to think about.
