Real-Life MDA: Solving Business Problems with Model Driven Architecture (Interactive Technologies)

Buy
"The need for this book—No one has published a similar compendium of MDA case studies, making a transition to new technology is not simply a technical affair, although many of us tend to overlook this point, and the authors are superb writers. These are people who have seen a lot in the industry and have a gift for articulating important trends."—David Frankel, consultant and author

Model Driven Architecture (MDA) is a new approach to software development that helps companies manage large, complex software projects and save development costs while allowing new technologies that come along to be readily incorporated. Although it is based on many long-standing industry precepts and best practices, such as UML, it is enough of a departure from traditional IT approaches to require some "proof of the pudding." Real-Life MDA is composed of six case studies of real companies using MDA that will furnish that proof. The authors' approach MDA projects by describing all aspects of the project from the viewpoint of the end-users—from the reason for choosing an MDA approach to the results and benefits. The case studies are preceded by an introductory chapter and are followed by a wrap-up chapter summarizing lessons learned.

* Written for executives, analysts, architects, and engineers positioned to influence business-oriented software development at the highest levels.

* Filled with concrete examples and analyses of how MDA is relevant for organizations of various sizes.

* Considers a range of uses for MDAfrom business process analysis to full-scale software modeling and development.

* Presents results for each case study in terms of tangible, measured benefits, including automatically generated code, defect reduction, improved visibility, and ROI.
