Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Software Systems Architecture, Second Edition is a highly regarded, practitioner-oriented guide to designing and implementing effective architectures for information systems. It is both a readily accessible introduction to software architecture and an invaluable handbook of well-established best practices.

 

With this book you will learn how to

  • Design and communicate an architecture that reflects and balances the different needs of its stakeholders
  • Focus on architecturally significant aspects of design, including frequently overlooked areas such as performance, resilience, and location
  • Use scenarios and patterns to drive the creation and validation of your architecture
  • Document your architecture as a set of related views

 

Reflecting new standards and developments in the field, this new edition extends and updates much of the content, and

  • Adds a “system context viewpoint” that documents the system’s interactions with its environment
  • Expands the discussion of architectural principles, showing how they can be used to provide traceability and rationale for architectural decisions
  • Explains how agile development and architecture can work together
  • Positions requirements and architecture activities in the project context
  • Presents a new lightweight method for architectural validation

 

Whether you are an aspiring or practicing software architect, you will find yourself referring repeatedly to the practical advice in this book throughout the lifecycle of your projects. A supporting Web site containing further information can be found at www.viewpoints-and-perspectives.info.

Book News Annotation:

Veteran software architects Rozanski and Woods offer a broad reference to the practice, which is becoming more important in software projects. This second edition takes account of changes over the 10 years since the first. They write primarily for other architects, but also for others in information technology. They cover architectural fundamentals, the process of software architecture, a viewpoint catalog, the perspective catalog, and putting it all together. Among the topics are the role of the software architect, identifying and engaging stakeholders, using styles and patterns, the functional viewpoint, the security perspective, and working as a software architect.

Synopsis:

As systems grow increasingly large, complex, and costly, software architecture becomes ever more crucial. Software Systems Architecture, 2/e, is the leading practitioner's guide to designing and implementing effective information system architectures. Authors Nick Rozanski and Eoin Woods have systematically updated their highly-praised first edition, while retaining the clarity, accessibility, objectivity, and practical focus that have made it indispensable to working architects. Rozanski and Woods focus on real-world issues, superbly blend business and technical concerns, and offer insights that are relevant in all environments, regardless of methodology. Their extensive updates to this edition include: 

 

  •  A new System Context Viewpoint, added to the authors' well-received architectural metamodel
  • Expanded discussions of using architectural principles to provide traceability and expose decision-making rationales
  • A discussion of how agile development and architecture can work together
  • Updated, expanded description of enterprise architecture 
  •  Expanded discussion of relationships between requirements and architecture
  • New "Questions for Discussion"
  • Updated bibliography and reading lists
