Software Architecture

Our applications are architected to grow with your business.

The architecture of a system describes its major components, their relationships, and how they interact with each other. Software architecture and design includes several contributory aspects such as business strategy, quality attributes, human factors, design, and IT environment.

Design

Software design provides a plan that describes the elements of a system, how they work together to fulfill the requirement of the system. The objectives of having a design plan are as follows:

  1. To negotiate system requirements, and to set expectations with customers, marketing, and management personnel
  2. Act as a blueprint during the development process
  3. Guide the implementation tasks, including detailed design, coding, integration, and testing

Goals of Architecture

The primary goal of the architecture is to identify requirements that affect the structure of the application. Good architecture reduces the business risks associated with building a technical solution that satisfies business and technical requirements. Some artchitectural goals are as follow:

  • Expose the structure of the system, but hide its implementation details
  • Realize all the use-cases and scenarios
  • Address the requirements of various stakeholders
  • Handle both functional and quality requirements
  • Improve the organization’s market position
  • Improve quality and functionality offered by the system
  • Improve external confidence in either the organization or system

We believe in the following principles

  • Avoid Big Designs Up-front
  • Evolutionary collaboration over blueprinting
  • No ivory tower architects or team members
  • Communication over perfection
  • Active stakeholder participation
  • High level models
  • Capture details with working code
  • Lean guidance and rules, not bureaucratic procedures
  • Architecture evolves incrementally and iteratively, emerging over time
  • The solution is quickly brought live and kept live to maximize ROI
