Enterprise Unified Process

Book: The Enterprise Unified Process

The Enterprise Unified Process extends the IBM Rational Unified Process (RUP) to address the full IT process.

This book defines the Enterprise Unified ProcessTM (EUP), which was first introduced by myself in 1999 and later enhanced to support a wider variety of clients. The EUP is an extension to the IBM Rational Unified Process (RUP).  Whereas the RUP defines a software development lifecycle, the EUP extends it to cover the entire information technology (IT) lifecycle. The EUP extends the RUP to include the operation and support of a system after it is in production and its eventual retirement. Furthermore, because all but the smallest organizations have more than one system, the EUP also handles cross-system enterprise issues such as portfolio management, enterprise architecture, and strategic reuse. Although the RUP defines a very good software development lifecycle, it is only a start: you need the EUP to address the entire IT lifecycle and to provide a mechanism for true IT governance of RUP projects.
