Software Engineering for Modern Web Applications: Methodologies and Technologies

As smooth companies migrate from older info architectures to new Web-based platforms, the self-discipline of software program engineering is altering either by way of applied sciences and methodologies. there's a have to learn this new frontier from either a theoretical and pragmatic standpoint, and provide not just a survey of latest applied sciences and methodologies yet discussions of the applicability and pros/cons of every.

Advances in Computers, Vol. 11

Due to the fact its first quantity in 1960, Advances in pcs has provided specific insurance of thoughts in and software program and in computing device thought, layout, and purposes. It has additionally supplied participants with a medium within which they could learn their matters in higher intensity and breadth than that allowed by way of average magazine articles.

Lean architecture for agile software development

An increasing number of Agile initiatives are looking for architectural roots as they try with complexity and scale - and they are looking light-weight how one can do it nonetheless looking? during this book the authors help you in finding your individual direction Taking cues from Lean development, they might help steer your venture towards practices with longstanding music files Up-front structure?

Advances in Computers and Information in Engineering Research

This e-book sequence goals to catch advances in pcs and data in engineering examine, in particular by means of researchers and contributors of ASME's desktops & details in Engineering (CIE) department. The books should be released in either conventional and book codecs. The sequence is targeting advances in computational tools, algorithms, instruments, and approaches at the leading edge of analysis and improvement as they've got advanced and/or were pronounced over the last 3 to 5 annual CIE meetings.

By necessity, these should be requirements which, when not attained, have a high impact on the goals of the key stakeholders. This focus allows an enterprise architecture to be used effectively when steering and coordinating transformation programs and projects. The meaning of the enterprise architecture then becomes that it provides a normative restriction of design freedom toward projects and programs. 6 Other Forms of Architecture As indicated by the definition in the previous section, enterprise architectures describe the most fundamental aspects and choices of the enterprise, close to its strategy.

The Open Group Architecture Framework (TOGAF 2009) is a standardized method for enterprise architecture. TOGAF is maintained by The Open Group, which is a consortium of literally hundreds of organizations covering both the profit and not-for-profit sectors. TOGAF finds its origins in the Technical Architecture Framework for Information Management TAFIM (1996), developed by the Department of Defense of the United States of America. At the start of 1995, the first version of TOGAF was developed, as an evolution of TAFIM.

From this angle, an enterprise architecture presents itself as a prescriptive and normative concept (Hoogervorst 2004). Hoogervorst (2009) states that normative guidance is the essential purpose of architecture. He considers architecture to be a prescriptive concept that expresses ex ante how systems must become, rather than a descriptive concept that depicts ex post how systems are. The concept of architecture principles, as will be elaborated in the remainder of this book, is prominent in the regulative role of enterprise architecture.
