Introduction to Solution Architecting & Design

A company going through such changes needs to have the expertise to employ practices including solution design and architecture, which will ultimately help in aligning business goals with technology solutions.

As an entrepreneur, it is important that you start a project putting your best foot forward. Solution architecture, as a vital practice, should be implemented before you actually start the development of a particular tech solution. For every complicated software project, designers and architects must have a realistic project plan, which is well-researched and well-thought-out. This also means that the teams dealing with enterprise solutions should be managed by project leaders or solution architects who have worked with similar solutions and attained success in the past.

Solution Architecting & Design

Important Processes Covered by Solution Architecture

A proper solution architecture can assist various teams in developing a particular product as per the budget and timeframe or deadline. It also provides solutions to the various issues for which it was actually designed. Here are three tasks that are easily carried out by a well-built solution architecture:

a) Matching Solutions With Corporate Ambience

Most businesses are already powered by various operating systems, an information framework, and assimilation requirements. Solution architecture assists in fitting in or combining a new system with the existing business surroundings. Before performing this task, it is important that a solution architect knows and understands how the various components of a business model such as processes, operating systems, and app architectures work jointly. By knowing the processes well, the architects would be in a position to develop a solution, which would be the best fit for the enterprise environment.

b) Meeting Needs of All Stakeholders

Meeting the requirements of various stakeholders can be a very big challenge while developing a software product. The primary aim of using solution architecture is to ensure that the requirements of both technical and non-technical stakeholders are met. In every business, stakeholders should often be informed about costs, progress in product development processes, as well as budgeting. It is the responsibility of a solution architect to translate all kinds of technical information into a language, which is intelligible to all the stakeholders and the management team.

c) Conformity With Non-Functional Requisitions

Most software projects are also meant to meet various non-functional prerequisites that are also known as quality attributes. The number of non-functional obligations depends on how complex a software product is. However, the commonly seen non-functional requirements of a product include sustainability, scalability, security, convenience in use, overall performance, and reliability. It is the duty of a solution architect to analyze all kinds of non-functional requirements and take steps to ensure that the requirements are met through enhanced product engineering.
