    Standards for Managing Applications

    This is the final post in a series on the importance of IT standards. In this post, I explore some standards that help to make it possible to monitor and manage applications. These standards can be used directly by developers but often commercial or open-source products are used that employ these standards. This leverages their power to provide interoperability across hardware platforms and software systems.

    Standards for Application Development

    This is the third post in a series on the importance of IT standards. The discussion in the first post was about mainframe standards—both de facto and derived—whereas the focus of the second post was a review of five important organizations that promote IT standards throughout the world. In this post, I explore standards that provide support important to application developers including HTML, Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP) and XML, as well as the role of programming languages with these standards and their supporting tools.

    Mainframe Standards

    This is the first post in a series on IT standards. The focus of this post is a review of standards that were created through mainframe computing and others that were later adopted. Creating standards and adopting others is a strength of mainframe computing and an important aspect of its resilience and vigor.

    The Future of Application Development Methods

    This is the final post in a series on how applications are developed. The focus of this post is a review of some of the current thinking on how to develop applications. Some practitioners lobby to take a new look at waterfall. Others are looking beyond agile in an effort to overcome some of its shortcomings. For many, the thrust is to modify what we have and make it better. For them, continuous improvement is a way to lower risk going forward.

    Replace Waterfall With Agile Where It’s a Fit

    This is the third post in a series on how applications are developed. The focus of this post is approaches to application development called agile. You’ll see that agile is a different way forward with developing applications as compared to waterfall.

    Make Waterfall Better With Prototyping and Incremental

    This is the second post in a series on how applications are developed. The focus of this post is how prototyping and incremental methods work and why some say that they “do it better” than waterfall. You’ll be able to see that some of the shortfalls of waterfall are addressed through the use of these methods that can be used in conjunction with waterfall, not necessarily as a replacement.

    Waterfall Development—Is it Dead or Alive?

    This is the first post in a series on how applications are developed: frameworks, approaches and methods or whatever you call these ways of designing and implementing software. The focus of this first post is the waterfall framework.
