Enterprise Unified Process: Extending the Rational Unified Process
Scott W. Ambler and Michael
Vizdos. 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,
Retirement, and several new disciplines:
Operations and Support and the seven enterprise disciplines (Enterprise Business Modeling,
Software Process Improvement).
This book, Disciplined Agile Delivery: A Practitioner's Guide to Agile Software Delivery in the Enterprise describes the Disciplined Agile Delivery (DAD) process decision framework.
The DAD framework is a people-first, learning-oriented hybrid agile approach to IT solution delivery. It has a risk-value delivery lifecycle, is goal-driven, is enterprise aware, and provides the foundation for scaling agile.
This book is particularly important for anyone who wants to understand how agile works from end-to-end within an enterprise setting.
Data professionals will find it interesting because it shows how agile modeling and agile database techniques fit into the overall solution delivery process.
Enterprise professionals will find it interesting beause it explicitly promotes the idea that disciplined agile teams should be enterprise aware and therefore work closely with enterprise teams.
Existing agile developers will find it interesting because it shows how to extend Scrum-based and Kanban-based strategies to provide a coherent, end-to-end streamlined delivery process.
