Microsoft Solutions Framework MSF process model ver. 3.1 Contents Abstract Introduction Overview of the methodology of other models of the processes best of both worlds The basic principles of MSF All illustrations and tables, as well as the continuation of the article, visit the Abstract The process model MSF (MSF process model) is a common methodology for building and deploying IT solutions. Feature of this model is that due to its flexibility and lack of procedures imposed tough it can be applied in development of very wide range of IT projects. This model combines the properties of the two standard production models: a cascade (waterfall) and helical (spiral). Represented in this document the latest version of the MSF Process Model complemented by another innovative aspect: it covers the entire life cycle of solutions from its starting point and ending with the introduction of directly. This approach helps project teams focus its focus on business impact (business value) solutions, as this becomes a real return only after the introduction and start using the product. MSF process is focused on "Milestones" (milestones) – the key points of the project, describing achievement within it of any significant (intermediate or final) results. This result can be evaluated and analyzed, which means that the answers to these questions: "Has the project group to a unique understanding of the objectives and scope of the project? "," In a sufficient degree prepared an action plan? "," Is the product approved specifications? "," Meets the needs of the customer whether the decision? ", etc.
Model MSF process takes into account the constant changes in design requirements. It comes from the fact that development decisions should consist of short loops, creating forward motion of the simplest versions of the solution to his final form. This document describes the MSF Process Model and a number of supplementary techniques. A brief overview of the methodology Striving to achieve maximum return on IT-projects, Microsoft has released a package of guidelines for effective design, development, implementation and maintenance of solutions built on Microsoft technologies. This knowledge is based on the experience gained at Microsoft working on large projects to develop and maintenance of software experience of Microsoft's consultants who worked on projects for companies customers and the best of what has accumulated to date IT industry. All this is presented in the form of two related and highly complementary areas of expertise: Microsoft Solutions Framework (MSF) and Microsoft Operations Framework (MOF). Creating a business decision within the allotted time and budget requires a proven methodological framework.
MSF provides proven methodologies for planning, designing, developing and deploying successful IT-solutions. Due to its flexibility, scalability, and lack of prescriptive MSF is able to meet the needs of the organization or the team any size. MSF methodology consists of principles, models and disciplines for managing personnel, processes, and technology elements associated with all these factors, issues specific to most projects. Information on MSF is available on the Internet at. MOF aims to provide the organization, creating a critical (mission-critical) IT solutions based on Microsoft products and technologies, technical guidance to achieve their reliability (reliability), accessibility (Availability), maintainability (supportability) and control (manageability). MOF to raise issues related to the organization of personnel, processes, technologies and management in complex (complex), distributed (distributed) and dissimilar (heterogeneous) IT-environments. MOF is based on best production methods, collected in IT Infrastructure Library (ITIL), compiled by Central Computer and Telecommunications Agency – UK Government Agency. Information on the MOF is available on the Internet at.
