Architecture CoE goals for 2009

1) Bootstrapping testing of legacy applications

2) Simplify People Systems applications

3) Learning




1) Bootstrapping testing of legacy applications
- All legacy Java applications will be enabled for one-click build, test and deployment
- Development teams working on these applications will increase app test coverage

2) Simplify People Systems applications
- Significantly decrease support costs and cost of change

3) Learning
- We will publish a training schedule with topics that our internal experts will discuss. Anyone within IT is welcome to attend
- This in turn gives us the opportunity to learn, teach, give back to the community and is a creative way to train ourselves given the economic situation

    Couple of thoughts for Goal number#2. Can we add or derive the following?
    - Code refactoring to improve maintenability
    - Define performance benchmarks and get all key apps within defined benchmark.

  2. Sure LD. Good ideas, specially to define key metrics that all products should meet.

    FYI, Alex and Abdul are leading this effort and have presented a plan of action. They can provide more details...
