Enterprise Unified Process (EUP)
Agile Strategies for Enterprise IT
The Rational Unified Process (RUP) is quickly becoming the defacto standard development process, also referred to as a software development methodology, within the object-oriented and component-based software communities. Is it sufficient? My experience is that it isn't, in fact, by its very scope definition it is insufficient because we need more than a development process, we need a full-fledged software process.
The Enterprise Unified ProcessTM (EUP) is an extension to the RUP. Figure 1 depicts the EUP lifecycle. People familiar with RUP can see that the extensions include two new phases, Production and Retirement, and several new disciplines: Operations and Support and the seven enterprise disciplines:

Whereas the RUP defines a software development lifecycle, the EUP extends it to cover the entire information technology (IT) lifecycle. The extensions include two new phases, Production and Retirement, and several new disciplines: Operations and Support and the seven enterprise disciplines (Enterprise Business Modeling, Portfolio Management, Enterprise Architecture, Strategic Reuse, People Management, Enterprise Administration, and Software Process Improvement).|
