    Author news: On co-authoring a book

    • 0 Comments
    Hello! Karl Wiegers here. I’m doing something right know that I’ve never done before: co-authoring a book. It’s a new experience for me, but it’s going remarkably well. I’ve written several articles with co-authors over the years, which went fine, but nothing like the scale of the book.

In August 2012 Joy Beatty, vice-president of research and development at Seilevel, asked me if I had thought about writing a third edition of my popular book Software Requirements . The first edition was published in 1999 and the second in 2003, both by Microsoft Press. I had indeed thought about writing a third edition from time to time...

    • 0 Comments
    Greetings, fellow employees. This is just a note to say that Ed Wilson will be presenting on Tuesday, July 24, about using Windows PowerShell 3.0 to manage the remote Windows 8 workstation. Here’s the abstract: There are four different ways to manage a remote Windows 8 workstation. The first is to use WMI remoting, the second is to use the computername cmdlets, the third is to use WinRm and Windows PowerShell native remoting, the last way is to use the CIM cmdlets.

    Software requirements: Delivering success when replacing a software system

    • 0 Comments
      The following guest post, by Joy Beatty and Karl Wiegers, is a condensed preview of Chapter 21, “Enhancement and replacement projects,” from the upcoming book Software Requirements, Third Edition (which we’ll be publishing in August). A replacement project replaces an existing software system with a new custom-built system, a commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) system, or a hybrid of those. There are some challenges that most replacement projects share, including stuffing in unnecessary functionality, degrading the organization’s operational performance, users refusing to adopt the new system, and having such a large project that it never deploys. Focusing requirements practices on addressing these issues directly can increase the likelihood of a system replacement that delivers the desired...
