About this book

It’s a jungle out there.

Delivering software solutions with predictable costs, time, scope, and quality has become more complicated than ever. Developers need to account for multiple moving targets, including often avoided but always relevant factors such as culture, people, and leadership. To effectively deal with these challenges, it’s necessary to rethink the entire delivery chain of modern software development. 

This book addresses all these topics, putting everything in perspective, from the potential awkwardness created by cultural differences to connecting code with business outcomes to make delivering quality solutions possible. As a software engineer who strives to be his best and challenge the status quo when building IT systems, author Tengiz Tutisani always wanted a book that would cover all of these elements from a developer’s perspective — so he wrote one. 

Effective Software Development for the Enterprise builds on advanced disciplines, methodologies, and techniques derived from domain-driven design, software architecture, and extreme programming. Its objective is to aid modern software engineers and solution architects in building and delivering high-quality solutions for an enterprise while meeting ambitious criteria:

  • Meet users' expectations
  • Deliver solutions on time with no defects
  • Create products that can scale-out horizontally
  • Solutions should not require a dedicated production support team
  • Accelerate development pace
  • Double ROI per developer, team, and software

You will learn how to achieve these objectives in any engineering environment by developing solid strategies based on the industry's well-known, recognized, and proven patterns and principles. After reading this book, you will be ready to effectively deal with any and all challenges posed by today’s hyper-competitive, globally-diverse, fast-moving enterprise environment.

Who This Book Is For
Professional software engineers and solution architects, as well as those aspiring to become one. Additionally, software engineering leaders will benefit from reading it, as it will help them maximize their impact via successful software project deliveries.


“I have been developing software for over 30 years, and am confident that the modern comprehensive approach laid out in this book will work better than that in any environment I have seen to date. This is the book many of us have been waiting for. It is highly relevant that the approach in this book is the product of the author's first-hand experience. There is nothing theoretical about it. It is entirely pragmatic. In fact, I found it to be more pragmatic than many other industry luminaries. All roles are covered, and in a way that is respectful to all of them. The first three sections are a must-read for non-technical team members, such as product owners. Its style and size make it a quick read with reference links to any deeper dives one may wish to make.” (Jim Hammond, Lead Developer, Kantar)

“This book is a collection of lessons learned, thoughts, ideas, and rationales from the author’s professional experiences. The views presented on aspects such as customer-focused requirements, reduction of work in progress, co-ownership of software development, testing, and maintenance resonated with me. Tengiz not only points out pitfalls and fallacies, he also provides in-depth remediation and has a nifty way to reference additional material. His writing style is engaging, and the anecdotal situations and stories invoke interest and make the book an enjoyable read. You’ll find this book to be a comprehensive compilation of several key concepts in software development methodology that are prevalent, overlooked, misunderstood, or simply hidden from the sight. Anyone looking to get the full breadth of software development best practices and principles will greatly benefit from this book.” (Preeti Baranga, Technical Leader in Software Development)

“This book is a must-read for both technical and non-technical readers: software engineers, architects, managers and even top-level executives. It will give you the tools you need to become an effective technology leader. The tools provided will apply whether your organization is focused on delivering software to external customers or has the need for internal solutions.  The book has a no nonsense approach and provides concrete solutions to common obstacles to delivering a cost-effective and long-lived software solution.” (Dave Black, Solutions & Performance Architect, Black Box Solutions, Inc.)

“I have found this book to be an all-encompassing eye-opener about all-things software development, starting from requirements analysis through successful releases. As a technology leader, I think it is worth considering techniques demonstrated in the "Effective Software Development for Enterprise" in organizations that want to change and run engineering processes and teams in a more efficient manner that delivers business value and improves morale.” (Lasha Kochoradze, CTO at Nugios Technology)

“I enjoyed reading the "Effective Software Development for Enterprise" because this is a unique book. Besides presenting techniques to implement Effective Software, the author tries to defeat the status quo and shift our mindset into a "what if" mode. This engraved passion and belief make the book a special one, which I would recommend to executives, architects, and other engineering leaders. I have seen and heard Tengiz succeed with the approaches he presents in this book. If he could do this, why can't anybody else?” (Nugzar Nebieridze, Entrepreneur, Expert of Cybersecurity, Ex-CIO at Liberty Bank Georgia)

“This book uncovers fundamental issues that are inherent to many large organizations. Take Agile teams as an example - they need to adapt to changes fast, but a confusing graph of dependencies makes it impossible to deliver features independently; how are they supposed to be agile then? Departments and groups are formed based on managerial preferences rather than the business problems that the company solves. Systems are built based on whatis easy to develop rather than what is right to deliver. The "Effective Software Development for Enterprise" fearlessly exposes gaps in organizational structures, processes, and technical systems. Being an Agile practitioner for years, I think this publication is up-and-coming, and I look forward to seeing companies adopting these suggestions and forming more scalable teams, processes, and applications.” (Romana Stasiv, Agile Fellow)
