Software Development Failures by Kweku Ewusi-Mensah

By Kweku Ewusi-Mensah

Failed or deserted software program improvement initiatives expense the U.S. financial system on my own billions of greenbacks a 12 months. In software program improvement mess ups, Kweku Ewusi-Mensah deals an empirically grounded research that implies why those mess ups ensue and the way they are often kept away from. Case experiences analyzed comprise the well known ensure trip reservation application, FoxMeyer's Delta, the IRS's Tax process Modernization, the Denver overseas Airport's luggage dealing with process, and CODIS.It has been expected that one-third of software program improvement initiatives fail or are deserted outright due to rate overruns, delays, and lowered performance. a few think of this an appropriate possibility -- that it's easily the price of doing enterprise. Ewusi-Mensah argues that realizing the criteria all for improvement mess ups might help builders and companies deliver down the speed of software program failure and deserted projects.Ewusi-Mensah explores the explanations software program improvement tasks are prone to failure and why problems with administration and association are on the middle of any failed undertaking. He examines those initiatives now not from a deterministically technical standpoint yet as a part of a fancy technical and social strategy; he proposes a framework of things that give a contribution to the choice to desert a venture and enumerates the dangers and uncertainties inherent in every one section of a project's existence cycle. Exploring the multiplicity of things that make software program improvement dicy, he offers empirical facts that's bolstered through analyses of the stated circumstances. He emphasizes the position of the person within the improvement procedure and considers the impression of organizational politics on a venture. eventually, he considers what classes should be realized from earlier disasters and the way software program improvement practices could be enhanced.

Extreme programming explored by William C. Wake

By William C. Wake

You recognize what XP is, the way to get it up and working, and the way to plot tasks utilizing it. Now its time to extend your use of maximum Programming and examine the simplest practices of this well known self-discipline. In severe Programming Explored, you could examine top practices as discovered from the concrete adventure of profitable XP builders. writer and programmer invoice Wake offers solutions to functional questions on XP implementation. utilizing hands-on examples--including code samples written within the Java programming language--this booklet demonstrates the day by day mechanics of engaged on an XP group and indicates well-defined tools for accomplishing a profitable XP undertaking. The e-book is split into 3 elements: *Part 1, Programming--programming incrementally, test-first, and refactoring. *Part 2, group Practices--code possession, integration, time beyond regulation, and pair programming; how XP ways method structure; and the way a method metaphor shapes a typical imaginative and prescient, a shared vocabulary, and the structure. *Part three, Processes--how to jot down tales to devise a unlock; tips on how to plan iterations; and the actions in a customary day for the buyer, the programmer, and the chief of an XP undertaking.

Design for Reliability: Information and Computer-Based by Eric Bauer

By Eric Bauer

Procedure reliability, availability and robustness are usually now not good understood by way of method architects, engineers and builders. they generally do not comprehend what drives customer's availability expectancies, how one can body verifiable availability/robustness standards, the right way to deal with and finances availability/robustness, tips to methodically architect and layout platforms that meet robustness necessities, and so forth. The publication takes a truly pragmatic process of framing reliability and robustness as a useful element of a procedure in order that architects, designers, builders and testers can tackle it as a concrete, practical characteristic of a process, instead of an summary, non-functional notion.Content:
Chapter 1 Reliability and Availability techniques (pages 1–29):
Chapter 2 method fundamentals (pages 31–56):
