Extend RUP to Drive Improvements Across the Entire IT Lifecycle
The Rational Unified Process is a powerful tool for improving software development -- but it doesn't go nearly far enough. Today's development organizations need to extend RUP to cover the entire IT lifecycle, including the cross-project and enterprise issues it largely ignores. The Enterprise Unified Process (EUP) does precisely that, enabling you to deliver systems that meet all the needs of today's businesses. Now, EUP's creator and architects present the definitive introduction to EUP, and demonstrate how to use it in your environment.
The Enterprise Unified Process systematically identifies the business and technical problems that RUP fails to address, and shows how EUP fills those gaps. Using actual examples and case studies, the authors introduce processes and disciplines for producing new software, implementing strategic reuse, "sunsetting" obsolete code and systems, managing software portfolios, and much more. Their independent, "tool agnostic" coverage will be indispensable no matter which RUP products or platforms you've invested in. Coverage includes
Practical, step-by-step guidance for adopting EUP in midsized-to-large organizations
Proven processes for optimizing ongoing IT operations and support
Enterprise business modeling and architecture with EUP
EUP disciplines for enterprise administration, people management, and software process improvement
Using the new EUP plug-in for IBM's RUP platform
Workflow diagrams fully consistent with RUP for easy understanding
Detailed appendices covering EUP roles, artifacts, and terminology
EUP is the missing link that can help IT professionals achieve the full benefits of RUP in the enterprise. This book will help you discover it, master it, implement it, and succeed with it.
