    Ed Wilson: Well … the week is nearly done

    • 1 Comments
    Today is Thursday! Yep, the week is nearly finished. It has been an exciting week, highlighted by conducting a week's worth of Live Meetings that have been attended by a couple thousand people . If history is any indication, the series of five live meetings will be downloaded many many more times than the actual number of attendees. The topic? Well Windows PowerShell of course. When doing Live Meetings, the thing that is great is the diversity of the audience. Actually, though, this seems to be the case wherever I go. Several years ago when I was teaching VBScript classes, I would always have a wide variety of people in the class – some who were clearly advanced scripters, and others who were just beginning to see the advantages of automating repetitive processes on their servers....

    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...

    Hope Springs Eternal

    • 0 Comments
    Kimberly here. In July, one reader included the following comment in a book survey: “I'm not convinced these surveys are always looked at, but I always live in hope!” Well, dear reader, I am here to assure you that your hopes are fulfilled on a regular basis! Back in January, when we launched our new book survey, we also launched a formal program to review the results. Each quarter, we look at the results for the books that sold during that quarter in two ways. First, we derive a numerical customer satisfaction score from the quantitative data. We report that score to the Microsoft Learning organization and it becomes part of our goals as a Microsoft Press team. Second, the Microsoft Press team meets to review all the comments for the books in a particular series or that cover a particular...
