In his book, PTA consultant Marc Armbruster constructs the so-called”building of economy”. This consists of six pillars, which in his view ensure successful software products in interaction. The foundation is software quality, on which the pillars of project setup, project management, architecture, development and testing, documentation and communication rest. Foundation and pillars lead together to economic software.
The author subjects all areas of software development to a careful cost and benefit analysis and focuses on their economic efficiency. Armbruster deliberately focuses on the entire software life cycle – from planning to initial publication, further developments, error management, migration and adjustments to decommissioning and archiving.
The author classifies the areas of influence in more detail and discusses the potential risks and opportunities on the way to successful software. “It was precisely this often less pronounced view and sense of medium-and long-term success that was one of the most important motivating factors for the book,” says the experienced software architect
The reading is aimed at experienced IT consultants, developers, architects, test managers and business analysts. Armbruster gives readers both tips and tools to avoid or solve typical problems. Numerous illustrations, graphics and charts round off his remarks.
