Modelling Adaptive Complex Systems
Wroclaw University of Economics, Poland
Traditional software engineering and management struggles to properly address systems complexity and adaptiveness. It offers only incomplete and disconnected methods for building software systems with only fragmentary ability to dynamically accommodate change and to grow gracefully. The contemporary paradigm shift to cloud-based service-oriented software production and delivery has introduced new difficulties and perspectives on complexity management. Service systems assume dynamic composition of services and emergent behavior and, therefore, they emphasize implementation over architecture (and over project management at large). The consequences are unclear. This course will discuss modelling of both traditional and modern information systems from the viewpoint of their adaptive complexity and will identify opportunities and risks that service-centered thinking brings into the discipline of software engineering.
