From the Script: SLIDE 46 - Summary
We have looked at the powerful technical arguments in favor of using the Ada programming language. Then we saw some equally strong business arguments for Ada. I explained how DOD Ada policy differs from ownership, and we have heard praise from some Ada success stories.
Ada was explicitly designed to support large systems well into the next century.
It surmounts past difficulties with single-vendor solutions, stovepipes, nonstandard and closed systems.
It is technically superior across a wide variety of development needs.
Demonstrably lower in cost through the entire lifecycle.
Successfully used today and growing in influence.
It is supported by DISA.
As we start to address the software engineering demands of twenty-first century, the results that are being accomplished with Ada will continue to speak for themselves.
