In the words of the web’s pioneer Marc Andreessen, “software is eating the world”. Ever more products, services, and entire industries, existing ones as well as new, are running on software. The main technological trends for future software development and its challenges will define where investments, for example through Horizon 2020 (H2020), will be useful and efficient. This study report on the research priorities for software technologies, gives an analysis of this area and its emerging issues.
