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
