In this article, authors present an empirical study based on a survey about the software architecture practices for managing non-functional requirements (NFRs) and decision making in software development process. They also discuss about how these requirements are elicited, documented, and validated at different organizations.
In this article, author discusses the effectiveness of the usage of design patterns in software development. The analysis is based on surveys and mapping studies conducted to indicate which patterns were considered useful under what circumstances.
This article describes the relationship between architecture and process of software development and how architecture can responds to a set of needs, such as functional requirements, operational characteristics, and developer habitability. It also talks about the role of pragmatic architects when working with developers and stakeholders.
This article shares a simple technique used to address problems such as a system’s intended functionality but also qualities such as performance, reliability, portability, and availability.
In this article, author talks about the need for change in predictive modeling focus and compares four types of data mining:algorithm mining, landscape mining, decision mining and discussion mining.
How should organizations leverage Cloud Computing approach to improve testing of software? In this article, author Forrest Shull spoke with James Whittaker from Google about cloud computing testing. 2
In this article, authors discuss a distributed architecture based on principles from security management and software engineering to address cloud computing’s security challenges.
In this IEEE roundtable discussion article, the panelists discuss current authentication approaches, how to authenticate users on mobile devices and the future direction of authentication. 1
In this IEEE article, author Mark Harman talks about evolutionary computation and search-based software engineering (SBSE) techniques that can be used to solve problems in software engineering.
In this IEEE article, authors discuss a continuous verification and validation of complex and safety-critical software systems.
In this article, authors Neil Harrison and Paris Avgeriou discuss a pattern-based architecture review process to help with quality attributes as well as agile practices like frequent releases. 1
In this IEEE article, authors talks about how a codesign methodology using modeling can benefit exascale computing systems with improved performance, power efficiency, and reliability.
