How do you know whether your system will achieve qualities that are important to your organization, such as performance, reliability, security, and maintainability? The quality of a system emanates in large part from its software architecture. Software architecture provides the most fundamental basis for communicating design decisions and reasoning about key system quality attributes.
The SEI Architecture Tradeoff Analysis Method (ATAM) is a proven method for evaluating software architectures. Government and industry organizations such as Aetna, BAE Systems, Boeing, Cisco, KPMG, Lockheed Martin, Motorola, Nationwide, Raytheon, Robert Bosch GmbH, Siemens, U.S. Army and Unisys have used the ATAM for more than 10 years to expose architectural risks that threaten their ability to achieve their business goals.
As Rolf Siegers of Raytheon said in his keynote address at the 2006 SEI Software Architecture Technology User Network (SATURN) Conference, “The SEI in the software architecture arena is a pioneer and has been for more than a decade.”SEI-Certified ATAM Leaders conduct SEI-authorized ATAM evaluations on behalf of SEI Partner organizations. Learn more about the steps to earning your ATAM Leader certification.
In 1984, the Carnegie Mellon Software Engineering Institute (SEI) was established as a federally funded research and development center (FFRDC) to advance software and systems engineering principles and practices. The SEI is the only FFRDC dedicated to the software engineering field. It has spent the past 25 years identifying, developing, and advocating practices for developing high-quality software. The SEI bases its curriculum on this rich body of research and experience with software-reliant systems.
