The upgrade of the former IRAM Plateau de Bure Interferometer toward
the NOrthern Extended Millimeter Array (NOEMA) by doubling not only
the number of antennas from 6 to 12 but also quadrupling the
instantaneous bandwidth with a next-generation correlator has
necessitated a large number of software upgrades, from antenna control
over calibration, monitoring and reduction pipelines, to new mapping
and analytical tools. In this talk, the major milestones and
of this multi-layer and cross discipline expansion will be presented.
The adaptation to even bigger and more sensitive data coming from
powerful instruments such as NOEMA paves the way for a major step
forward in mapping the optically invisible universe.
