Architechtural design is a crucial first step in developing complex software intensive systems. Early design decisions establish the structures necessary for achieving broad systemic properties. However, today’s organizations lack synergy among software, their development processes, and technological methodologies. Providing a thorough treatment of the latest theory and best practices, Architecting Software Intensive Systems: A Practitioners Guide Explains:

How and when to design architectures

How to weave architecture design processes into existing development processes

What to do with architecture design artifacts once created
