An Agile Model-Driven Development Approach - A Case Study in a Finance Organization
In the Sungard Front Arena, current software portfolio a business functionality called Market Server Capability (MSC) is embedded and duplicated in many components. By the application of Agile and Lean principles on model-driven development, the authors will get an Agile approach for constructing the architecture of a new MSC definition which will eliminate the duplication and inconsistency, while still maintaining a short implementation phase. The resulting architecture has a single modeling level, with merged PIM and PSMs. The model is designed by reverse engineering of the legacy code in a Test Driven Development fashion.
