The SEI helps advance software engineering principles and practices and serves as a national resource in software engineering, computer security, and process improvement. The SEI works closely with defense and government organizations, industry, and academia to continually improve software-intensive systems. Its core purpose is to help organizations improve their software engineering capabilities and develop or acquire the right software, defect free, within budget and on time, every time.
SMART Adoption Feasibility (SMART-AF) is tailored for organizations that are new to SOA and are probably not ready for a pilot project. The goal of SMART-AF is to determine if it makes sense for an organization to adopt SOA, to understand its migration options, and to start putting together a migration strategy that may include the use of other members of the SMART Family.
After you download the SMART-AF materials, begin by viewing the SMART-AF workshop slides. These will provide an overview of the process and tell you how to use the other materials.
