The Nature of Software Development
€ 22.99 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

You need to get value from your software project. You need it ´´free, now, and perfect.´´ We can´t get you there, but we can help you get to ´´cheaper, sooner, and better.´´ This book leads you from the desire for value down to the specific activities that help good Agile projects deliver better software sooner, and at a lower cost.

You Cannot Predict the Future
€ 16.99 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Almost all activities in contemporary software projects try to predict the future - analyzing, architecting, programming, testing, budgeting, and scheduling. Since nobody can yet reliably predict the future, those activities cannot possibly work as well as desired. Unknowns: Unknowns lie at the root of all software problems, otherwise someone could just fix them. Unknowns make bugs and enhancements inevitable. Bride-of-Agile: Sponsoring-organization obligations to projects concern politics and resources. Bride-of-Agile practices include working through continual change, fostering diversity and debate, and dealing with problem stakeholders. Determinism versus Emergence: Determinism enables productive use of existing tools and practices. Emergence provides opportunities to write new programs that will benefit others. Recent skirmishes between Waterfall and Agile extend the 2500-year-long battle within philosophy and science over causality and free will. Polish versus Rot: The Sunrise problem sheds light on the concept of good enough for now. Quality improves through polish - analysis, programming, and testing. Quality worsens through rot - changing expectations, usages, and technologies. Technical debt embodies the economic tradeoffs of deferring polish and rot. Coping with Surprise: Subjective search underlies Agile and Bride-of-Agile practices, helping everyone to be less wrong and to cope with surprises. Plans are essential but, alas, even the best laid plans go oft astray.

Once Upon an Algorithm
€ 23.99 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

In Once Upon an Algorithm, Martin Erwig explains computation as something that takes place beyond electronic computers, and computer science as the study of systematic problem solving. Erwig points out that many daily activities involve problem solving. Getting up in the morning, for example: You get up, take a shower, get dressed, eat breakfast. This simple daily routine solves a recurring problem through a series of well-defined steps. In computer science, such a routine is called an algorithm. Erwig illustrates a series of concepts in computing with examples from daily life and familiar stories. Hansel and Gretel, for example, execute an algorithm to get home from the forest. Along the way, Erwig also discusses representations and different ways to organize data; ´´intractable´´ problems; language, syntax, and ambiguity; control structures, loops, and the halting problem; different forms of recursion; and rules for finding errors in algorithms.

The Practitioner´s Guide to Data Quality Improv...
€ 51.99 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Information is an asset that is generated through numerous processes, with multiple feeds of raw data that are combined, processed, and fed out to multiple customers both inside and outside your organization. Many business problems can be directly tied to a situation in which data quality is below expectations. This can, however, be mitigated by closely controlling the quality of the process, overseeing the activities from beginning to end, and ensuring that any imperfections are identified as early as possible. The Practitioner´s Guide to Data Quality Improvement provides readers with the fundamentals for developing an enterprise data quality program, and it serves as a guide for both the practitioner and the manager in establishing a data quality center of excellence. Readers are presented with information about business case templates, characterization of business impacts, correlated metrics, visualization and reporting, and the use of data quality tools. This seminal text offers advice on how to actually get the job done, not shying away from difficult topics or subjects.

Requirements Engineering
€ 63.99 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Requirements engineering is the process of eliciting individual stakeholder requirements and needs and developing them into detailed, agreed requirements documented and specified in such a way that they can serve as the basis for all other system development activities. In this textbook, Klaus Pohl provides a comprehensive and well-structured introduction to the fundamentals, principles, and techniques of requirements engineering. He presents approved techniques for eliciting, negotiating and documenting as well as validating, and managing requirements for software-intensive systems. The various aspects of the process and the techniques are illustrated using numerous examples based on his extensive teaching experience and his work in industrial collaborations. His presentation aims at professionals, students, and lecturers in systems and software engineering or business applications development. Professionals such as project managers, software architects, systems analysts, and software engineers will benefit in their daily work from the didactically well-presented combination of validated procedures and industrial experience. Students and lecturers will appreciate the comprehensive description of sound fundamentals, principles, and techniques, which is completed by a huge commented list of references for further reading. Lecturers will find additional teaching material on the book´s website, www.requirements-book.com.

Verification of Reactive Systems
€ 64.99 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Reactive systems are becoming more and more important for essentially all areas of technical and professional activities as well as for many areas of everyday life. The design of these systems is a great challenge and requires sound compromises between safety and time-to-market. To meet these needs, early design phases nowadays include verification of given specifications against system descriptions to find potential design errors as early as possible. This book is devoted to the foundation of the most popular formal methods for the specification and verification of reactive systems. In particular, the µ-calculus, omega-automata, and temporal logics are covered in full detail; their relationship and state-of-the-art verification procedures based on these formal approaches are presented. Furthermore, the advantages and disadvantages of the formalisms from particular points of view are analyzed. Most results are given with detailed proofs, so that the presentation is almost self-contained. This book is targeted to advanced students, lecturers and researchers in the area of formal methods.

As information is becoming a fundamental resource, adequate information protection is one of the crucial factors for the expected growth of information-based processes in industry, business, and administration. Cryptography is a key technology for achieving information security in communications, computer systems, electronic commerce, and, more generally, in the emerging information society. Given the strong interest in information protection, Springer has decided to launch Information Security and Cryptography (IS&C) as a prestigious hardbound book series covering all relevant topics, ranging from theory to advanced applications. The series will consist of textbooks, monographs, and coherent multi-author anthologies on hot topics. IS&C will complement Springers other crypto-related publishing activities. While the Journal of Cryptology and LNCS are devoted to the timely publication of high-quality research results, the new IS&C series will be dedicated to the top -quality, comprehensive treatment of topics that have reached a sufficient level of maturity.
