It’s a hell of a statement isn’t it….the management of a lifecycle.
We are of course talking about applications and although it seems a hard jump to make, an application does have a lifecycle, and does need managing. We know just how to manage that lifecycle to maximize the benefits and minimize the costs, so that makes us the experts.
Stay with me, I will let you into my thought process that gets me here.
Let’s look at it from component parts of the statement:
- Life is defined as having existence in a physical world…CHECK.
- Applications exist on a computer…
- Life is a characteristic that distinguishes objects that have self-sustaining processes…CHECK.
- An application over its life becomes self-sustaining as companies use it and at some point can no longer function as a business without it.
These are different from those applications that are, either because such functions have ceased or else they lack such functions, classified as inanimate….
These are perhaps the applications that serve no real function, they are not required by the business but no-one has noticed they are still there – they are for all intents and purposes, inanimate
It’s quite a lot to think about against a piece of software that does ‘stuff’ on a computer.
- Repeated sequence of events – A process that returns to its beginning and repeats itself in the same sequence. Such processes seen in many fields, such as physics, mathematics, biology, astronomy, economics, audio frequency, etc.
An application’s lifecycle can fit into this category – it is ‘born’ (coded), ‘lives’ (is used), ‘reproduces’ (new versions), ‘gets old’ (outdated and slow) and then ‘dies’ (decommissioned)
Anyone else feeling the stretch of my statements?? Stick with me…
- The act of getting people together to accomplish desired goals and objectives, directing, controlling and planning.
- Someone widely recognized as a reliable source of technique or skill is accorded authority and status by their peers in a specific well distinguished domain.
An expert, more generally, is a person with extensive knowledge or ability based on research, experience, or occupation and in a particular area of study. Experts are called in for advice on their respective subject
So, if you bring everything back together…
