Defining actionable, measurable, and testable requirements implies following proven project methodologies like Agile and engaging in collaborative work on both sides – architects’ team and business stakeholders.
Techniques such as tradeoff and failure analysis, optimization, prototyping and simulation, scaled modeling, design reviews etc. help assess the architecture completeness, implementation correctness and behavior in response to specific events.
Detailed architectural description is a crucial output and provides a way to communicate to all stakeholders, reflective of their viewpoint, not only technology background.
Through functional decomposition of business processes into modular components, our architects can recognize and reuse patterns, thus set up the instrumentation to manage change throughout the software development lifecycle.
