Is it just me, or does "... a semiconductor company triangulates key systems to facilitate integration of important and accurate data ..." sound like pointy-haired weasel-words? I understand what you're saying, Scott, and it does make sense, but it just sounds so pretentious! Perhaps it makes too much sense; much of what you have written seems to be so much common sense. And don't get me started on Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) systems! I've used Agile at two employers now, and as an engineer, it's just too complicated with far too many steps to required to do what should be simple tasks. I'm less familiar with the other three-letter acronyms (TLA's) you mentioned, CRM and ERP.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
