Agile Software Architecture

Agile software development approaches have had significant impact on industrial software development practices. Today, agile software development has penetrated to most IT companies across the globe, with an intention to increase quality, productivity, and profitability. Comprehensive knowledge is needed to understand the architectural challenges involved in adopting and using agile approaches and industrial practices to deal with the development of large, architecturally challenging systems in an agile way. Agile Software Architecture focuses on gaps in the requirements of applying architecture-centric approaches and principles of agile software development and demystifies the agile architecture paradox. Readers will learn how agile and architectural cultures can co-exist and support each other according to the context. Moreover, this book will also provide useful leads for future research in architecture and agile to bridge such gaps by developing appropriate approaches that incorporate architecturally sound practices in agile methods. Presents a consolidated view of the state-of-art and state-of-practice as well as the newest research findings Identifies gaps in the requirements of applying architecture-centric approaches and principles of agile software development and demystifies the agile architecture paradox Explains whether or not and how agile and architectural cultures can co-exist and support each other depending upon the context Provides useful leads for future research in both architecture and agile to bridge such gaps by developing appropriate approaches, which incorporate architecturally sound practices in agile methods

Architecture knowledge management (AKM) aims to codify and maintain the architectural knowledge of a software system in a form that can be easily accessed by different stakeholders. Integrating AKM with an agile project management paradigm is a challenge because the agile philosophy downplays both plan-driven development and documentation. Yet, by integrating lightweight AKM practices with the process, agile software development could avoid maintenance and communication problems arising from scarce documentation. In this chapter, we introduce existing technologies that could be

Verifying the security posture as a system evolves is indispensable for building deployable software systems. Traditional security testing lacks flexibility in (1) providing early feedback to the architect on the ability of the software to predict security threats so that changes are made before the system is built, (2) responding to changes in user and behavior requirements that could affect the security of software, and (3) offering real design fixes that do not merely hide the symptoms of the problem (i.e., patching).

Architecturally significant requirements (ASRs) drive and constrain many aspects of architecture. Eliciting and analyzing these requirements in the early phases of a project means that quality concerns can be discovered and addressed during the architectural design. This reduces the risk of costly and unnecessary refactoring. The challenge of emerging requirements is particularly evident in agile projects, which are inherently incremental; however, existing techniques for eliciting ASRs, such as win-win and i*, are typically rejected by agile development teams as being

Running a dedicated instance of a software application can be burdensome to a customer if it involves a large amount of memory and processing overhead or a licensing fee or if the customer is a small company. Multitenancy (MT) architectures (MTAs) allow for multiple customers (i.e., tenants) to be consolidated into the same operational system, hence reducing the overhead via amortization over several customers. Lately, MTAs are drawing increasing attention because MT is regarded as an essential attribute of

The way in which architectural decisions are made changes when more agile development methods are used. This chapter focuses on architectural decisions and how they are made in industrial settings. From our literature research and experience, we have constructed three axes on which the architectural decision process of projects or companies can be projected. We evaluate this framework with five industrial case studies in which we have participated. In all of the cases, the differences between two points in time (

This chapter discusses software architecture analysis in the context of agile processes. Agile processes are characterized by incremental and interleaved activities and by a focus on continuous improvement and delivery. Most approaches to software architecture analysis, however, have been developed to be performed at dedicated points in the development process or as external evaluation activities and not as continuous activities throughout the development process. This chapter discusses continuous software architecture analysis (CSAA). It reviews important requirements for CSAA and outlines

Large enterprise organizations are increasingly turning to the use of agile approaches for their information technology (IT) development and are encountering a range of challenges that were not faced by the early, usually smaller, agile adopters. Enterprise-scale organizations frequently have complex organizational structures and complex IT estates, including a mix of legacy and modern applications. Both of these attributes have a negative impact on the ease with which agile principles and practices can be applied. This chapter describes the experiences

We find surprisingly strong parallels in a playful comparison of the progression of thought in the architecture of the built world and its namesake in software. While some architectural progression in both fields owes to fashion, much more of it owes to learning—in both the field of design and collective human endeavor. We have been working on a paradigm called DCI (Data, Context, and Interaction) that places the human experiences of design and use of programs equally at center

This chapter describes how to systematically prevent software architecture erosion by applying refactoring techniques. Software architecture modifications are common rather than the exception in software development. Modifications come in different flavors, such as redefining or adding requirements, changing infrastructure and technology, or causing changes by bugs and incorrect decisions. But no matter where these changes originate, they need special attention from software architects. Otherwise, if software architects merely focus on adding new features—(changes or extensions that by themselves might
