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

Software architecture (SA) is one of the most significant areas of research and practice in software engineering. It has been shown that getting architecture of large-scale complex systems right is not only extremely important but hugely challenging. The increasing popularity and adoption of Agile Software Development (ASD) methods have brought architecture-centric methods and practices into question as agile followers tend to perceive architecture in the context of plan-driven software development. It is widely recognized that SA needs sufficient attention for

Continuous Architecture provides a broad architectural perspective for continuous delivery, and describes a new architectural approach that supports and enables it. As the pace of innovation and software releases increases, IT departments are tasked to deliver value quickly and inexpensively to their business partners. With a focus on getting software into end-users hands faster, the ultimate goal of daily software updates is in sight to allow teams to ensure that they can release every change to the system simply and

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

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

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

Variability facilitates the design of software products that can be adapted for a wide range of customers or contexts. In agile development, software products begin to be built before the desired product is fully understood. Both variability and agile development embrace change and adaptation. This chapter combines the agile paradigm and variability to achieve adaptable software architectures and shows how the agile paradigm and the concept of variability can complement each other in an approach to variability handling at the

As the digital economy changes the rules of the game for enterprises, the role of software and IT architects is also transforming. Rather than focus on technical decisions alone, architects and senior technologists need to combine organizational and technical knowledge to effect change in their company’s structure and processes. To accomplish that, they need to connect the IT engine room to the penthouse, where the business strategy is defined. In this guide, author Gregor Hohpe shares real-world advice and

Agile architecting is a key issue to scale agile to develop large software systems. This chapter describes a set of mechanisms that make agile architecting feasible. These mechanisms are smoothly integrated in a tailored Scrum for agile architecting by (1) defining product requirements in terms of features by using feature pools and feature trees to provide the portfolio and roadmap visions of a product, (2) designing highly flexible architecture called working architecture, (3) bridging user stories and software architecture through features and design

Organizations must adapt to survive, and their ability to change and innovate is driven by two key enablers - architecture and agile. Based on practical experiences of working with several clients adopting both architecture and agile practices, the author sheds light on those factors that resulted in successful transformations and the creation of a platform for innovation. The author concludes that architecture and agile practices are complementary and that their successful introduction within an organization is not just technical in

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

This is a practical guide for software developers, and different than other software architecture books. Here's why: It teaches risk-driven architecting. There is no need for meticulous designs when risks are small, nor any excuse for sloppy designs when risks threaten your success. This book describes a way to do just enough architecture. It avoids the one-size-fits-all process tar pit with advice on how to tune your design effort based on the risks you face. It democratizes architecture. This book
