2 Who am I? *1981 in Erding, Germany Accidently ended up in Computer Science Studied in Passau and Málaga Diploma thesis at Fraunhofer institute Software Product Lines Software & Systems Engineering Research Industry Collaboration & Consulting Teaching Stays abroad Dissertation à Now what?

3 Warm-up What is sustainability for you? What do you relate with the term? What do you want to learn/discuss here? à Mind Map

4 Agenda Definition of Sustainability & History Sustainability in Software Engineering State of Research State of Practice Case Study Topics list

5 Where does sustainability come from? 1983 UN World Commission on Environment and Development (WCED) " Mission: Report on earth and environment, status quo Result: 1987 Brundtland Report " Def.: Sustainable development is development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations " to meet their own needs UN Earth Summit: Agenda 21 (178 voted yes ), Realisation of the Brundtland Report 5

6 What is sustainable development? 6

7 What is sustainability in SE? Lifecycle Sustainability in the initial software development process (responsible use of ecological, human, and financial resources). Sustainability of the software system during lifetime and maintenance period including, finally, replacement " (continuous monitoring of quality, knowledge management). Product Sustainability of the software system as product with respect to its use of resources for production " (green IT, sustainably produced hardware components). Sustainability in the usage processes in the application domain that are triggered by the software system as product " (responsible in impact on environment, green business processes). 7

8 What kind of systems are relevant? Resource-intensive fabrication (production) Impact-intensive operation (e.g. contamination) Sustainability-promoting products (e.g. Yellow Events) Stakeholder: User (market-driven) Law (environmental acts) Company (Corporate Social Responsibility) Employee (self interest) 8

9 Scoping Out of scope Hardware-related Issues Green Washing In scope Sustainability with special regard to Environment Start with Requirements Engineering 9

18 Tomlinson Greening through IT Humans are facing significant environmental issues that occur over long time scales, large distances, and great degrees of complexity. Unassisted, humans are not well equipped to deal with problems on these scales. Throughout history, technological innovations have enabled human cultures to deal with broader suites of problems than we would otherwise be able to address. IT specifically involves tools and techniques for dealing with vast bodies of information across wide ranges of time, space, and complexity, and is thus well suited for addressing environmental concerns.
