Copyright Maveo Systems Shanghai3 Software Architect is Someone Who Can Make Sub-optimal Decision in Total Darkness
Copyright Maveo Systems Shanghai4 Objectives of this talk Give a sense of what is Software architecture Example of Software Architecture Principle of good Software Architecture How to prepare to become a good Software Architect Do not have to make Sub-optimal Decision anymore
Copyright Maveo Systems Shanghai5 Intro. to Software Architecture Definition of Software Architecture History/evolution of Software Architecture Overview of System Architecture How Software Architecture fit into System Architecture A Typical Software architecture Components of a typical Software architecture What to consider -- internal/external constrains
Copyright Maveo Systems Shanghai6 Definition of Software Architecture Francis Anderson (Chief Object Architect, ClearSystems): A set of solution frameworks to which all aspects of the problem domain are mapped. Brahim Djoudi (Software developer, GIAT Industries, Toulouse, France): The software architecture is the set of all the concepts (software components, frameworks, DB, paradigm, programming language,...) used to "view" an entire software before it's designed. SEI:A software architecture is an abstract view of a software system distinct from the details of implementation, algorithms, and data representation. Architecture is, increasingly, a crucial part of a software organization's business strategy
Copyright Maveo Systems Shanghai7 Definition of Software Architecture Software Architecture for Product Families Software architecture is a set of concepts and design decisions about the structure and texture of software that must be made prior to concurrent engineering to enable effective satisfaction of architecturally significant explicit functional and quality requirements and implicit requirements of the product family, the problem, and the solution domains.
Copyright Maveo Systems Shanghai8 Definition of Software Architecture UML 1.3: Architecture is the organizational structure of a system. An architecture can be recursively decomposed into parts that interact through interfaces, relationships that connect parts, and constraints for assembling parts. Parts that interact through interfaces include classes, components and subsystems.

Develop ment View Allocates packages and subsystems to layers and components. Also defines the development structure. Process View Allocates components to processes. Physical View Allocates processes to processors, nodes, networks. Use Case View (The Plus One) Captures requirements used to develop and validate each of the other views.

Copyright Maveo Systems Shanghai23 Summary Software Architecture need to consider from both technical point of view as well as business point of view There are different ways to communicate architecture design There is no THE best architecture for any one software system Always need consider external constrain, such cost, infrastructure,… Maturity of IT organization, not only development, but also operations Architecture is a live entity, therefore, ability to grow, migrate is very important

Copyright Maveo Systems Shanghai27 What is Software Architect The Software Architect operates nearly as a peer to the project manager. While the project manager deals with budgets, plans, resources and tracking progress, the architect sets the technical vision for the project, mentors the technical staff, and monitors design and implementation artifacts for quality and compliance to standards.
