    This book presents the analysis, design, documentation, and quality of software solutions based on the OMG UML v2.5. Notably it covers 14 different modelling constructs including use case diagrams, activity diagrams, business-level class diagrams, corresponding interaction diagrams and state machine diagrams. It presents the use of UML in creating a Model of the Problem Space (MOPS), Model of the Solution Space (MOSS) and Model of the Architectural Space (MOAS). The book touches important areas of contemporary software engineering ranging from how a software engineer needs to invariably work in an Agile development environment through to the techniques to model a Cloud-based solution.

    Bhuvan Unhelkar (BE, MDBA, MSc, PhD; FACS) has more than two decades of strategic as well as hands-on professional experience in Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) industry. As a Founder of MethodScience.com he has notable practical consulting and training expertise in business analysis (use cases, BPMN) software engineering (object modeling, Agile processes and quality), Green IT (environment), enterprise architecture (including SOA), project management, collaborative web services and mobile business. His domain experience includes banking, financial, insurance, government as well as telecommunication organizations wherein he has created industry-specific process maps, quality strategies and business transformation approaches. For the past few years, Dr. Unhelkar has been actively involved in researching into Green IT and the environment – and its application in practice. He has supervised a PhD in the area of Environmentally Responsible Business Strategies (by B. Trivedi) as also set up and delivered a two day training course approved by the Australian Computer Society titled Green IT Design and Implementation (delivered around Australia through Connection Research/Envirability). He is winner of the Consensus IT professional award and the IT writer award under the ‘best author’ category.Dr. Unhelkar earned his Doctorate in the area of "object orientation" from the University of Technology, Sydney, in 1997. Subsequently he designed and delivered course units like Global Information Systems, Object Oriented Analysis and Design, Business Process Reengineering and IT Project Management in the industry as well as across Universities in Australia, China and India. He lead the Mobile Internet Research and Applications Group (MIRAG) at the University of Western Sydney, where he is also an adjunct Associate Professor. He has authored/edited sixteen books in the areas of collaborative business, globalization, mobile business, software quality, business analysis, business processes and the UML, and has extensively presented and published papers and case studies.
