Novel in its approach to software design, development, and management, Building Software: A Practitioner's Guide shows you how to successfully build and manage a system. The approach the authors recommend is a simple, effective framework known as Solution Engineering Execution (SEE).

Through SEE, you create a successful solution by following a highly organized, well-planned process. This process makes you view the solution from a holistic, systematic perspective.

Developing a successful system requires that you are able to address technology matters related to architecture, design, selection, integration, and security. Building Software: A Practitioner's Guide offers insight into how to make software reliable and how to ensure it meets customer and organizational needs.

Using the above approach you are able to:

  • Find a good solution to the problem at hand

  • Focus on engineering the solution well

  • Address all aspects of delivery associated with the solution

The book provides insightful examples of cross-domain and legacy solutions that allow you to overcome common software concerns such as requirement issues, change control, quality and schedule management, and internal and external communication problems.
