From the Back Cover:

Unique "how-to" focus is invaluable whether you're a software architect, software engineer, or IT executive

Implementing and managing software architecture across a value chain, product line, or enterprise can be tremendously difficult.

Software Architecture: Organizational Principles and Patterns offers the first complete roadmap for building software architectures that achieve the most demanding goals―now, and for years to come. Discover how to:

  • Establish a product-line architectural framework and vision that managers, administrators, and developers can buy into
  • Implement architectures that anticipate and predict change and can easily adapt to new business requirements
  • Address the organizational issues that make or break enterprise software architectures

Unless you understand how architecture will interact with your organization and unless you know what to do, even the most sensible architectures can quickly stagnate or lead to more unpleasant surprises.

The authors, a team of leading architects, will show you how to field resilient, long-lasting architectures. Software Architecture: Organizational Principles and Patterns introduces the breakthrough VRAPS (Vision, Rhythm, Anticipation, Partnering, and Simplification) model for software architecture and demonstrates how to leverage it through real-world case studies, patterns, and antipatterns.

"The three authors do a good job of highlighting the dual aspect of the architect's job: handling social as well as technical complexity. They connect the architect's technical activity to surrounding social issues that can easily derail it, making good use of both patterns and antipatterns to structure their advice."

―Alistair Cockburn, Humans and Technology, and author of Surviving Object-Oriented Projects

"Dikel, Kane, and Wilson have written at once a great tool book for the practitioner wishing to improve software product development, and a guide for the executive charged with managing complex software engineering activity."

-Jeff Barr, President, Vertex Development

But implementing and managing software architecture across a value-chain, product-line, or enterprise can be tremendously difficult. Unless you understand that architecture will interact with your organization and unless you know what to do, even the most sensible architectures can quickly stagnate or lead to more unpleasant surprises.The authors, a team of leading architects, will show you exactly how to field resilient, long-lasting enterprise architectures. Software Architecture: Organizational Principles and Patterns introduces the breakthrough VRAPS (Vision, Rhythm, Anticipation, Partnering and Simplification) model for software architecture and demonstrates how to leverage it through real-world case studies and patterns.
