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 Environment (SMART ENV) is aimed at organizations that have identified a target SOA environment (or have been mandated to use a particular SOA environment) but do not understand the implications of migrating to this environment. The goal for SMART-ENV is the characterization of the target SOA environment, including preliminary costs and risks of migrating to that environment.
After you download the SMART-ENV materials, begin by viewing the SMART-ENV workshop slides. These will provide an overview of the process and tell you how to use the other materials.
