Can Software Keep Up with Moore's Law?

Software developers need to do things differently

According to Moore's Law, the number of transistors on an integrated circuit doubles every 24 months. Can software keep up? To do so, software vendors need to tackle the seismic shift in server technology toward 64-bit multi-core servers with massive memory banks. Software vendors have been slow to adopt the techniques required to get the most out of these new servers, never mind those coming in the future. And customers pay the price, without necessarily realizing it.

This article will cover what the software industry needs to do to keep Moore's Law going, examining what major changes we can expect over the next year, what challenges these pose to software vendors, and how the software industry can keep pace to optimize customer benefits.
