Agenda <ul><li>Overview </li></ul><ul><li>Enterprise software development process </li></ul><ul><li>Enterprise architect tools </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Provide architectural guidance </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Communicate application architecture </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Capture business/data requirements </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Ensure application scalability </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Team development </li></ul></ul>
  3. 3. Overview <ul><li>Enterprise development is systematic </li></ul><ul><li>Collaborative work environment </li></ul><ul><li>Support for all roles essential </li></ul><ul><li>Standards help – e.g., UML, XML, etc. </li></ul><ul><li>Architectural guidance and reusable assets essential </li></ul>
  4. 4. Enterprise Software Development Process <ul><li>Envisioning </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Requirements gathering, product vision </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Planning </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Architectural/technology decisions </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Developing </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Software/database design </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Implementation </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Testing </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Documentation </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Stabilizing </li></ul><ul><li>Deployment and maintenance </li></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>IT development projects are getting more complex, larger, and more critical </li></ul><ul><li>A poor application architecture can make any platform perform poorly </li></ul><ul><li>A good architecture only works if people follow the rules when implementing it </li></ul><ul><li>Good help is hard to find (and expensive!) </li></ul><ul><li>“ Best practices” are useless if no one follows them </li></ul>Provide Architectural Guidance Enterprise templates
  6. 6. Enterprise Templates What is it? Enterprise Template Application Structure (projects, code, etc.) Policy (TDL) Guidance (context & html) Things to Include Things to Exclude
  7. 7. Enterprise Templates Features and the Visual Studio .NET IDE Toolbox & Menu Constraints Initial Project Structure Property Constraints Constrain Additions Policy Task List Reminders Dynamic Guidance
  8. 8. Enterprise Templates Add “best practices” to frameworks <ul><li>Organize structure for complex projects </li></ul><ul><li>Supply pre-built common implementation </li></ul><ul><li>Simplify IDE for newer developers </li></ul><ul><li>Help avoid common mistakes </li></ul><ul><li>Predefine common property settings </li></ul><ul><li>“Just in time” focused guidance </li></ul>
