Introducing DRYML

By | AIFORSE Framework, Trending

“If you can’t describe what you are doing as a process, you don’t know what you’re doing.” — Edwards Deming

DRYML (an acronym for “DRY Modeling Language”) is both a human- and machine-readable software modeling language.

DRY (an acronym for “Don’t repeat yourself”) is a principle of software development aimed at reducing repetition of software patterns, replacing it with abstractions or using data normalization to avoid redundancy. [Wikipedia]

Software Business VS Technical Architecture Diagram, AIFORSE Edition

What is the Level of your Tech Start-up? Part 3/3. Software Business vs Technical Architecture

By | Software Architecture

This article is a part of a Series “What is the Level of your Tech Start-up?”. It consists of thee Articles, aimed to define and describe two main Viewpoints when creating new Tech Company: Technical and Business, and how they combine together.

Intro

Although the name suggests applying this Approach to Start-ups, it can be used by existing companies, which have been operating in the field for a long time. It’s great to use this Vision when searching for new development opportunities.

The Series itself contains the following Articles, which are recommended to read in the provided order (as it usually goes with tech teams — from technology to business):

AIFORSE Framework - Software Engineering Enterprise Processes Map (08/Jan/2019)

AIFORSE Framework – Software Engineering Enterprise Processes Map (08/Jan/2019)

AIFORSE Framework (AIFORSE_xF)

AIFORSE Framework (AIFORSE_xF) is a suite of best practices and standards that enables and utilizes artificial intelligence for effective and efficient software engineering.

It enables you to assess and optimize performance using a proven, data-oriented approach to operations and integration. The practical tools available in AIFORSE_xF help improve end-to-end management of services across complex environments.

AIFORSE_xF is aimed to improve agility in product development, solution delivery, and outsourcing Processes, resulting in increased margins, lower costs, and optimal customer experience. AIFORSE_xF is created and evolved by AIFORSE Community members.

AIFORSE_xF also includes adoption best practices to help companies implement and use the standards and management best practices to ensure ongoing conformance.

Software Engineering Enterprise Processes Map

This is the high-level (L0) Map of all the main processes, related to production and delivery of software solutions by companies of a different type, size and specialization, independent on a software type, chosen methodologies and implementation practices. It can be used by both Product and Outsourcing Software Companies to align internally as well as with Customers, Partners, and Investors on the main Software Engineering related activities, which shall be planned, organized, run and managed.

Main Layers: Software Engineering and Solution Delivery

The main Layers of the AIFORSE Framework Software Engineering Process Map, which are the most related to the Software Production Operations are:

  • Project Layer
  • Product Layer
  • Service Layer
  • Resource Layer

They define the levels at which Organizations operate, and provide capabilities to synchronize the corresponding activities.

Project Layer

It combines Elements of lower level Layers (Products, Services, Resources) for a defined Customer, Timeline, Scope, and Budget.

Product Layer

It covers any Software with defined Users, Business Cases, and Functional Capabilities.

Service Layer

The Service Layer is responsible for any Operations (Manual or Automated), related to the creation or maintenance of Software (Design, Coding, Testing etc.).

Resource Layer

It holds everything related to used or produced Resources (Logical or Physical), related to the creation, use or maintenance of Software (Workforce, Infrastructure, Artifacts etc.).

 

Start using the Map right now – self-check if all the operations are covered in your Company.
Click on the picture and download the file in high-resolution.
The next release will describe each element in more details and provide the definition of processes at the next (L1) Level of Decomposition.
