Pittsburgh, Pa., February
7, 2012—The Carnegie
Mellon Software Engineering Institute (SEI) will host "Architecting
Software the SEI Way: Essential Steps Toward Mastery," a free virtual event on Tuesday,
February 28, from 1 to 4:30 p.m. (ET). For nearly two decades, the SEI has been
instrumental in the creation and development of the field of software
engineering known as software architecture. The software architecture of a program
or computing system is a depiction of the system that fosters understanding of
how the system will behave.
event will provide software and systems practitioners the tools and information
they need to use architecture practices more effectively and to build better
systems more efficiently and productively. The event offers something for
everyone in the field, from those who produce robust software architectures to
those who view software architecture as a critical element in their business or
Rob Wojcik, Felix Bachmann, and John Klein, leading problem solvers and
innovators in evaluating and improving software architecture, will share their knowledge
and insights in software and systems architecture. Their work is informed by years
of professional and research experience. This three-hour live webcast will
- Fundamentals: Discover the nature
of software architecture in terms of architectural structures, the role that
software architecture plays in an organization, the role of quality attribute
requirements in architectural design, and the technical, business, and social
influences on software architectures.
Practice: Explore how to
conduct a software evaluation using the SEI's Architecture Tradeoff
Analysis Method (ATAM). Learn how to integrate ATAM architecture-evaluation
techniques into the architecture design process to
ensure the creation of successful systems.
Technical and Business Goals: Review the SEI perspective on
architecture-centric engineering and understand how that approach scales from
its original software context through systems and systems of systems. Discuss
SEI methods applicable to systems and systems of systems, and learn how those
methods can be extended to apply to enterprise architectures.
