Ken Orr, who was first known for the structured analysis and design methodologies on which he collaborated with Ed Yourdon, Dominique Warnier and others in the 1980s, died on June 14 at age 77. He was a professor, consultant, and author of software engineering books and papers. In recent years, he was a Fellow and Senior Consultant at the Cutter Consortium, which gave me the privilege to meet him and appreciate his intellect, experience and leadership. Always curious to explore new trends, Ken led seminars on agile software development and on big data for some of our common clients in the last couple of years.
