Linking software architecture and project management: the key to successful software development.
  • Practical techniques that speed time to market, improve performance, enhance software quality, and reduce risk.
  • How to develop architecture-based cost and schedule estimates -- and use them as a framework for project management.
  • Based on lessons learned at Siemens, one of the world's leading software development organizations.
To fully leverage the value of software architecture in enterprise development projects, you need to expressly and consciously link architecture with project management. This book shows how, drawing on powerful lessons learned at Siemens, one of the world's leading software development organizations. The authors offer insight into project management for software architects, insight into software architecture for project managers, and above all, insight into integrating the two disciplines to maximize the effectiveness of both of them. Learn how to develop cost and schedule estimates for development projects, based on software architecture; how to clarify architecture so projects can be more effectively planned and managed; and then how to use architecture to organize, implement, and measure the project iteratively as work progresses. Daniel J. Paulish is a software project manager at Siemens with more than twenty years of experience in software engineering management. He has been an international lecturer on software project management, software process improvement methods and measurement. He is co-author of Software Metrics: A Practitioner's Guide to Improved Product Development.
