This book focuses on software architecture and the value of architecture in the development of long-lived, mission-critical, trustworthy software-systems. The author introduces and demonstrates the powerful strategy of “Managed Evolution,” along with the engineering best practice known as “Principle-based Architecting.” The book examines in detail architecture principles for e.g., Business Value, Changeability, Resilience, and Dependability. The author argues that the software development community has a strong responsibility to produce and operate useful, dependable, and trustworthy software. Software should at the same time provide business value and guarantee many quality-of-service properties, including security, safety, performance, and integrity. As Dr. Furrer states, “Producing dependable software is a balancing act between investing in the implementation of business functionality and investing in the quality-of-service properties of the software-systems.” The book presents extensive coverage of such concepts as: Principle-Based Architecting Managed Evolution Strategy The Future Principles for Business Value Legacy Software Modernization/Migration Architecture Principles for Changeability Architecture Principles for Resilience Architecture Principles for Dependability The text is supplemented with numerous figures, tables, examples and illustrative quotations. Future-Proof Software-Systems provides a set of good engineering practices, devised for integration into most software development processes dedicated to the creation of software-systems that incorporate Managed Evolution.

The practical implications of technical debt for the entire software lifecycle; with examples and case studies. Technical debt in software is incurred when developers take shortcuts and make ill-advised technical decisions in the initial phases of a project, only to be confronted with the need for costly and labor-intensive workarounds later. This book offers advice on how to avoid technical debt, how to locate its sources, and how to remove it. It focuses on the practical implications of technical debt for the entire software life cycle, with examples and case studies from companies that range from Boeing to Twitter. Technical debt is normal; it is part of most iterative development processes. But if debt is ignored, over time it may become unmanageably complex, requiring developers to spend all of their effort fixing bugs, with no time to add new features--and after all, new features are what customers really value. The authors explain how to monitor technical debt, how to measure it, and how and when to pay it down. Broadening the conventional definition of technical debt, they cover requirements debt, implementation debt, testing debt, architecture debt, documentation debt, deployment debt, and social debt. They intersperse technical discussions with "Voice of the Practitioner" sidebars that detail real-world experiences with a variety of technical debt issues.

This book explains the management aspects of DevOps for those who are professionally engaged in information and technology management. It is written for IT specialists, IT managers and IT executives. It does not show DevOps as a phenomenon associated with new automation tools, programming techniques or technologies; It differs from other books by the structural nature of the narrative (perhaps, excessively structured) approach and by the attempt to cover fully the phenomenon of DevOps at a basic, fundamental level. By this approach, this book not only creates awareness of the new subject area but is also helps building the basics. The reader learns about the origins of DevOps, the inevitability of its emergence, the key prerequisites and their reflection in practices, about the practices themselves and the principles on which they are based. This book is the core literature of the EXIN DevOps Foundation certification. This exam tests the understanding of basic DevOps concepts and how they relate to each other, as well as the value of DevOps for the business. EXIN DevOps Foundation is the first level of the EXIN DevOps certification program. The EXIN DevOps Professional certification tests the knowledge of DevOps practices and how to integrate teams. The EXIN DevOps Master certification is about promoting organizational change and leading the way towards continuous delivery and improvement.
