Introduction to the RUP

I recently posted a white paper entitled "A Manager's Introduction to the RUP" at http://www.ambysoft.com/unifiedprocess/rupIntroduction.html . It is a PDF which overviews the Rational Unified Process. My hope is that it will provide a sufficient understanding of the RUP for anyone who is just learning about it.

Feedback is always appreciated.

I just updated this paper based on the feedback which I've received the past few days. Major changes include:
- Greater focus on the disciplines
- Discussion of the forthcoming RMC
- Coverage of the new best practices

Hmmm, spotted this:


IBM Rational has made, and continues to make, a significant investment in the RUP. In November 2005 IBM Rational announced that the RUP product (IBM 2004), along with Summit Ascendant (another IBM-owned software process), would evolve into Rational Method Composer (RMC). RMC is an Eclipse-based tool which enables you to define, maintain, and deploy software process related material (Kroll 2005).


Guess I missed IBM acquiring Summit processes. We used to have lots of Summit vs RUP debates. Summit changed hands (and technologies for presentation) every few years.

IBM picked up PWC a couple of years ago, and as a result now own Summit.
