The SEI in the software architecture arena is a pioneer and has been for more than a decade.

Rolf Siegers, Raytheon
Lead, Raytheon Mission Architecture Program

In this set of three, 1-hour webinars, SEI researchers provide information that is important to making better use of software architecture practice.

You will learn:

  • what software architecture is and why it is important
  • why evaluation methods can continuously ensure the creation of successful systems
  • how an architecture-centric approach links business goals with the enterprise architecture that is crucial to achieving them

Hour One: Fundamentals

Software Architecture Fundamentals: Technical, Business, and Social Influences

Rob Wojcik addresses the basics of software architecture. Rob discusses the nature of software architecture in terms of architectural structures; the role that software architecture plays in an organization; the technical, business, and social influences on software architectures; and the role of quality attribute requirements in architectural design.

Hour Two: Improved Practice

Architecture Evaluation: A Tool for Designing Systems That Meet Users' Needs

Felix Bachmann introduces the Architecture Tradeoff Analysis Method (ATAM), a tool that has proven to be a valuable tool for ensuring that systems are designed and built to satisfy stakeholder needs. Felix discusses how an ATAM can be readily integrated into the architecture design process to continuously ensure the design is on the right track.

Hour Three: Bridging Technical and Business Goals

Analyzing and Evaluating Enterprise Architectures

It is the SEI's view that enterprise architecture is critical to achieving business goals and that architectures are shaped by quality attribute requirements. John Klein addresses how to effectively translate business goals into quality attribute requirements and assure that those requirements are reflected in decisions that shape an enterprise architecture.
