Architecture Recovery: Making Sense of Your Existing Applications

Like many others, you are probably living with many legacy applications, without even considering that today's applications are tomorrow's legacy. You probably want to evolve them, but are afraid to even try as there is likely no documentation and the original architects are long gone. However, you know that the first step to leveraging and reusing your existing infrastructure is to understand your applications and more particularly their architecture.

Based on his architectural digs experience for his architecture handbook, Grady Booch will introduce you to the concept of architecture recovery.

Booch always says: "The code is the truth, but not the whole truth." Join this webcast to hear Booch discuss architecture recovery discipline, introducing an approach to extract architecturally significant elements from your code, models, documentation or even tribal memory as a first step to IT transformation.
