Ivar Jacobson on the Unified Process
Carl and Richard talk to the father of UML and the Unified Process, Ivar Jacobson. He recently put forth the Essential Unified Process (EssUp). Not to be missed.
Dr. Ivar Jacobson is a father of components and component architecture, use cases, the Unified Modelling Language and the Rational Unified Process. He has contributed to modern business modelling and aspect-oriented software development. Lately he has been working on a smarter way to deal with methods and tools in a superlight and agile way. He has developed a practice concept that is now being adopted by both developers and tool vendors. Right now he is working with a team of software leaders with the mission to build a widely-adopted, strong foundation under software engineering. The initiative is called Software Engineering Method And Theory (SEMAT).
He is the principal author of six influential and best-selling books.
Ivar Jacobson is the chairman of Ivar Jacobson International which has subsidiaries in the US, UK, China, Singapore, Australia, Sweden and Canada.
