The best-practices solution guide for rescuing broken software systems
Devised to rescue failing IT implementations, Incremental Software Architecture presents an advanced approach for designing durable, flawless, and elastic software systems to enable business growth. This is a practical-solutions manual with complete guidance, abundance of hands-on instruction, and powerful remedies formulated to save software malfunction. Such software architecture failure typically hinders organizational response to commerce trends, growing consumer demands, changes to business strategies, and technological evolution.You'll learn how to avoid developing software systems that are destined to fail and rescue under-performing software implementations that have already deployed to production. These methods and practices will help you circumvent the business losses that cause companies to flounder.
- Mitigate risks of software development projects
- Accurately assess technological feasibility and viability
- Increase return on investments (ROI)
- Provide effective tools to assess technological achievability and viability
- Introduce software design best practices for enterprise architecture efforts
- Identify actual software construction value proposition
- Foster software assets reuse and consolidation
- Accelerate time-to-market
On the software architecture front, fierce competition and volatile commerce markets drive companies to invest heavily in the construction of software systems, which strains IT and business budgets and puts immense pressure on existing network infrastructure. As technology evolves, these increasingly complex computing landscapes become more expensive and difficult to maintain. Incremental Software Architecture shows you how to revamp the architecture to effectively reduce production environment burden, cost, and the chance of failure.
When large-scale implementations and monolithic application formations fail, the results are devastating to an organization's productivity and bottom line. Reducing this type of risk requires slicing the architectural blueprint into segments in order to design, analyze, verify, and ultimately implement a robust, company-wide system solution in phases. Incremental Software Architectureis the cutting-edge field guide to diagnosing and rebuilding underperforming software systems into models of efficiency and standardization.
Authoritative insight from a leader in the industry paired with plenty of hands-on practice make this groundbreaking resource a must-have for IT and business managers serious about saving their software systems by developing the best and most powerful remedies to the root causes of their software malfunctions. Practical coverage is specifically designed to answer the most common questions facing those in charge of finding and fixing software systems when they negatively impact business performance. It details architecture and design best practices for enterprise architecture efforts and demonstrates how to promote reusing and consolidating existing software assets. To provide at-your-fingertips referencing in the real world, critical material on the incremental software architecture process and its primary objectives is conveniently organized in three sections covering the discovery and analysis, decomposition, and certification of an enterprise end-state. Right away, you'll be able to start:
- Mastering effective tools to assess technological achievability and viability
- Increasing ROI and accelerating time-to-market
- Identifying actual software construction value propositions
- Engineering a system that operates effectively in complex computing environments
There's no end to the fierce competition and volatile commerce markets driving companies to allocate large budgets to constructing software systems, which makes the skill set you gain with this book a long-term asset to your professional toolbox. See for yourself how your value to a company increases with your ability to decrease strain, cost, and the chance of failure with Incremental Software Architecture.
