Saturn Network

What is SATURN?

The SEI Architecture Technology User Network (SATURN) is a professional network of software, systems, and enterprise architects from around the world, representing industry, academia, and government.

Each year the SEI sponsors the SATURN software architecture conference. SATURN 2016 was held in San Diego, California, May 2–5, 2016. SATURN 2017 will be held in Denver, Colorado, May 1–4, 2017.

SATURN connects architecture practitioners to

  • share ways to effectively develop or acquire software and systems architecture

  • enhance their skills in the development, documentation, and evaluation of software and systems architecture

  • build the community's knowledge of software and systems architecture

  • find solutions, service providers, training, partners and more to help their organizations

  • stay current with the latest SEI architecture technologies

  • meet with other software, systems, and enterprise architecture professionals at the annual SATURN Conference
