9780123705921: Real-Life MDA: Solving Business Problems with Model Driven Architecture (The MK/OMG Press)

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 MDA-from 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.

Book Description:

The first field reports of MDA from leading companies

From the Back Cover:

Real-Life MDA
Solving Business Problems with Model Driven Architecture
Michael Guttman
John Parodi

"This is an exceptional book. Instead of stringing syllables of technological pieces together, the authors tell the whole story; they manage to tie backgrounds, motivations and organizational impact into the big picture."
Dragan Djuric, PhD, Department of Information Systems, FON, University of Belgrade, Serbia

The technical side of model driven architecture is well documented. Real-Life MDA is the first book to take an extended look at this exciting new approach to software development in the context of real business needs. Authors Guttman and Parodi don't tell you what MDA can do for your company; instead, they provide a detailed account of what it has done for six different organizations, both governmental and corporate, each with its own goals, structure, and processes.

Each of these end user case studies begin with the business problem to be solved, continues by charting the entire process from selection of tools to client experiences, and ends by offering a realistic assessment of the results. The authors then summarize the studies by determining common factors, discussing what organizations can benefit most from MDA, and sketching several scenarios for its use.
