Service- and Component-based Development: Using Select Perspective™ and UML

Book Description

This book presents the approaches and practices for the construction of software systems using Select Perspective.

  •  It details the key workflows for a contemporary approach to supplying, managing, and consuming software assets to deliver business IT systems.

  • This book provides a comprehensive development lifecycle (Select Perspective) for component and web service based IT solutions, that supports parallel development activities, to reduce time-to-market.

  • It introduces the Select Perspective as a Supply, Manage, Consume software development process.

  • It provides a real world project experience and examples.

  • Technology:   Unlike other development processes, Select Perspective is focused on a small number of key deliverables within an organizational framework of suppliers and consumers, of solution driven components.   Audience:

    For CIOs, IT Directors, Project Managers, and solution developers.
