Neglected Aspects of Software Architecture
Todd Kaiser, a Chief Architect of Government Systems at Raytheon Intelligence & Information Systems, delivered an outstanding presentation at the 2007 SATURN workshop. The absolute beauty of the presentation is simplicity with which he delivered a very important message: some software architects ignore non-technical aspects of software architecture that results in “collateral damage.” In addition to concentrating on technical pillars of a solution: data, structure, and behavior, an architect must also actively weigh managerial, financial, and contractual aspects of software architecture. Your personal architecture world may be different, but Todd Kaiser’s presentation succinctly delivers the message that applies to most architects: architecture is more than just technology.SATURN 2007 presentation on Neglected Aspects of Software Architecture.
