In this article, authors examine architectural languages (ALs) and model-driven engineering (MDE) as means for improving the architecture design. They review a framework of AL requirements, which includes Architectural Language definition, features and architecture tools. They also talk about MDE as a technological solution for supporting the AL requirements framework.
Data analytics play a central role in the healthcare system by improving outcomes and quality of life while helping to control costs. In this article, author describes the role analytics can play with the emerging wearable technologies with biophysical interfaces, physiological sensors, and embedded diagnostic tools.
When working on projects, it is most of the time necessary to forecast the project delivery time up front. Little’s Law can help any team that uses user stories for planning and tracking project execution no matter what development process it uses. We use a project buffer to manage the inherent uncertainty associated with planning and executing a fixed-bid project and protect its delivery date.
Are you in the process of moving applications to a public cloud? In this article, we’ll explore four stages in a cloud migration lifecycle and the questions to answer before exiting each one. 1
In this article, based on a research study, author presents big data as service-oriented and evolutionary case of disruptive IT-enabled services (IESs) rather than as datasets.
Suman Pradhan has written about developing the CORE approach to helping architects and developers build sustainable solutions that match the business needs.
Finding ways to eliminate root causes of delays can improve flow. This article discusses clustering blockers and provides ways to prioritize blockers that have most impact or are the quickest wins.
In this article, author discusses evolving technologies like Machine Learning and IoT, how organizations can benefit from these new sources of information and intelligence.
An interview with Jan Bosch about getting benefits from increasing delivery speed, steps after adopting Agile and DevOps, using experiments to innovate, and practices for experimentation.
An interview with Katharine Kirk about how agile or lean can increase politics and how she combines ideas from agile and lean with eastern and tribal philosophy to deal with people issues that arise.
Graph NoSQL databases support data models with connected data. In this article, author discusses security implications of graph databases in use cases like graph discovery and knowledge management.
The book Scenario-Focused Engineering describes a customer-centric lean and agile approach for developing and delivering software-based products using a fast feedback cycle.
