9780133763034: Practical How-to Guide to Architecting and Documenting Successful it Projects (IBM Press)

One of the toughest challenges software architects face is to effectively document their systems and architectures. Yet this is also one of their most crucial challenges, because ambiguous, incomplete, or inaccurate documentation leads directly to failures in design and implementation. Now, pioneering IBM senior architect Tilak Mitra offers the first complete guide to writing architectural documentation that is clear, crisp, accurate, non-redundant, and usable.

 

This is the only book to provide detailed prescriptive and pragmatic guidance for documenting any real-world IT project, regardless of system, methodology, or environment. Mitra specifically identifies the artifacts that require documentation, showing how to fully communicate your solution to stakeholders, and enable implementers to move confidently from macro-level to micro-level design.

 

Step by step, Mitra addresses key architectural aspects including: system context, function, operations, infrastructure, integration, performance, capacity planning, SOA, and more. He shows how to avoid "over-engineering" and excessive documentation that can delay project delivery and increase risk, while ensuring that designers and developers always have the accurate and specific guidance they need.

Book Description Pearson Education (US), United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 230 x 179 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Getting Architecture Just Right: Detailed Practical Guidance for Architecting Any Real-World IT Project To build effective architectures, software architects must tread a fine line between precision and ambiguity (a.k.a. big animal pictures). This is difficult but crucial: Failure to achieve this balance often leads directly to poor systems design and implementation. Now, pioneering IBM Distinguished Engineer and Chief Technology Officer Tilak Mitra offers the first complete guide to developing end-to-end solution architectures that are just enough --identifying and capturing the most important artifacts, without over-engineering or excessive documentation, and providing a practical approach to consistent and repeated success in defining software architectures. Practical Software Architecture provides detailed prescriptive and pragmatic guidance for architecting any real-world IT project, regardless of system, methodology, or environment. Mitra specifically identifies the artifacts that require emphasis and shows how to communicate evolving solutions with stakeholders, bridging the gap between architecture and implementation. Through a real-world case study, Mitra guides you iteratively through building an end-to-end solution architecture. Step by step, he addresses key topics in developing system contexts, architecture overviews, architecture decisions, functional models, operational models, integration patterns for systems design, infrastructure matters, and more. Throughout, you ll find clear, crisp, and accurate guidance for crafting architectures that can be confidently delivered on time and budget. Coverage Includes * Using architecture to promote communication, enable planning, and support functional as well as nonfunctional capabilities (such as scalability, performance, maintainability, and security)* Focusing on the architectural problem at hand and avoiding overreliance on theory and generalization* An architectural introduction to analytics* Capturing just enough about system context, architecture overview, architecture decisions, functional models, and operational models* Integration patterns and their usage in architecture design* Infrastructure matters in any software architecture* A real-world case study and its software architecture.

Book Description Pearson Education (US). Paperback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, Practical Software Architecture: Moving from System Context to Deployment, Tilak Mitra, One of the toughest challenges software architects face is the proverbial lacuna between theory and practice vis-a-vis how much is just practical enough to effectively complete the job of architecting. Deciding what is just enough to be successful often treads a fine line between precision and a combination of ambiguity, incompleteness and inaccuracy, which often leads to failures in systems design and implementation. Now, pioneering IBM Distinguished Engineer and Chief Technology Officer (Industrial Sector) Tilak Mitra, offers the first complete guide to mastering the skills of how to follow this theme of just enough and develop end-to-end solution architectures that identify and define only the most important, relevant and practical architectural artefacts. This is the only book to provide detailed prescriptive and pragmatic guidance for architecting any real-world IT project, regardless of system, methodology, or environment. Mitra specifically identifies the artefacts that require treatment emphasis showing how to fully communicate any evolving solution to stakeholders thereby highlighting techniques to bridge the proverbial gap between solution architectures and solution implementations. He uses a real world use case study and builds its solution architecture iteratively through every chapter. Step by step, Mitra addresses key architectural aspects including: system contexts, functional models, operation models, integration patterns for systems design along with infrastructure considerations. He demonstrates how to avoid "over-engineering" and excessive documentation which are often attributed as reasons for project delivery delays and increased risks. His fluent and conversational writing style is destined to provide a clear, crisp and accurate recipe guide on how to successfully operate like a top-notch software architect repeatedly and consistently. Mitra also provides a very insightful and informative treatment of Analytics from an architectural viewpoint with a complete Analytics Architecture Blueprint. He concludes with a short but invaluable collection of some of his reflections and experiences in the field of IT. Bookseller Inventory # B9780133763034
