SW4E – Software Engineering Ecosystem for Efficiency, Excellence, Experiments

The SW4E Ecosystem established by the software industry develops know-how and tools to be internationally attractive. The share and importance of the software industry in practically all products and services is growing rapidly. In addition, digital systems are becoming more and more complex. The SW4E Ecosystem established by software companies responds to the challenges of growing complexity and demand by strengthening the know-how of software development methods, technologies and tools.

The ecosystem was started by Bittium Oyj, F-Secure Oyj, Oy L M Ericsson Ab, M-Files Oy, Visma Solutions Oy, Basware Oyj, Innofactor Oyj, OP Group, KELA and Demola Global Oy as well as Aalto University, Tampere University, LUT University and University of Oulu, University of Turku and University of Jyväskylä.

One form of operation of the ecosystem are R&D projects shared by the members, such as the QLeap project led by the University of Jyväskylä, in which also involves Nokia, Tietoevry, Bittium, M-Files, Solita and Vaadin. QLeap focuses on exploring the various challenges of using containers in software development. The SW4E ecosystem is already preparing several similar initiatives. The ecosystem is financed by the participating companies and Business Finland.
