Architecture and Analytics Platforms Team

Overview

The Architecture and Analytics Platforms team tackles major challenges in software architecture, data analytics, computing infrastructure, DevOps, and dependability. Please refer to the Disciplines below for an overview of our backgrounds.

While we work on a wide range of topics, there are two major efforts of R&D in the team: the Process-Oriented Dependability (POD) framework, and usage of Blockchain technologies – see the Research Topics section below.

New DevOps Book

We published a new book:
“DevOps: A Software Architect’s Perspective”
in June 2015.

Research Topics

  • Process-Oriented Dependability (POD): The POD framework aims to improve the dependability of processes through behavioral anomaly detection. The approach relies on creating a process model for each operation and using that model to guide near-real time detection, diagnosis, and recovery from errors in the execution of the process.
  • Blockchain: Blockchain is an emerging technology for decentralized and transactional data sharing across a large network of untrusted participants. It enables new forms of distributed systems, where participants can find agreements on their shared states without trusting a central authority or any particular participates. Our group is mainly working on three aspects, including designing with blockchain, analyzing and improving trustworthy of blockchain, and legal reasoning with Smart Contracts on blockchain.
  • Data Analytics Platform: Data analytics and machine learning systems are increasingly used in various application areas and achieve many widely noticeable successes. Most of these systems benefit from large scale distributed system for data storage and complex computation. Our data analytics platform research target on both core distributed and parallel system techniques for running these systems on integrated data in a fast and scalable manner, and actual data analytics system development for application domains with challenging data handling problems such as health and scientific computing.

Disciplines

The above activities are underpinned by expertise in software architecture, data management, performance engineering and dependable cloud computing and applications.

  • Software Architecture: all decisions and management are affected by the overall structure of the application, and this can be utilized in the activities through models that relate the architecture to the properties obtained and through guidance to determine suitable architectural choices.
  • Data Management: cloud platforms offer facilities for use of shared long-term data, however they differ in functionality and consistency from what is common in traditional database management. Furthermore, the cost (in time or money) of moving large amounts of data into or out of a cloud platform is usually surprisingly high. Innovative approaches to dealing with this data are needed to arrive at suitable application designs.
  • Performance Engineering: achieving acceptable throughput and latency requires ways to model and tune the performance of the application and the cloud platform, a task that is more challenging than for traditional systems as the information and control is divided between the application owner and the platform owner.
  • Dependable Cloud Computing and Applications: applications need to be engineered with dependability despite of the limited visibility and controls provided by the underlying platforms.

We will also apply empirical software engineering, AI planning, optimisation and business value driven IT management, software process research to our problems.
