Architecture Competence: What Is It? How Do We Measure It?
Software architecture is the single most important software artifact determining the success of a software system, agree many experts. That’s why so many researchers have examined its technical aspects and offered tools and methodologies toward making it better. What they hadn’t investigated were the people wielding these technologies—architects—and the human and organizational factors necessary to producing sound architecture. Such investigation, determined five SEI researchers, might help define architecture competence and enable its measurement and improvement. Paul Clements, Len Bass, Rick Kazman, Mark Klein, and John Klein, all members of the SEI Software Architecture Technology (SAT) Initiative, undertook the study.
