Over the past few years, software architecture, influenced by the agile movement and Scrum, has evolved into an iterative discipline. With the growing complexity and deployment of software systems, the role of software architects for the success of critical IT has become all the more decisive.
Trend towards microservices
We are seeing a rising pressure to deliver faster and make systems accessible to more people and more reliable. Experts are noticing a trend towards microservices. Therefore, modern software architecture has to collaborate in a network with Requirements Engineering, Development, Delivery and Operations.
Software architects have the task of implementing complex content-related and technical requirements for IT systems and designing these systems using traceable structures in a flexible way that allows for additions. Certification programmes help organisations and individuals develop expertise on software architecture and keep it up to date.
