technical architecture


Technical architecture is one of several architecture domains that form the pillars of an enterprise architecture or solution architecture. It describes the structure and behaviour of the technology infrastructure of an enterprise, solution or system. It covers the client and server nodes of the hardware configuration, the infrastructure applications that run on them, the infrastructure services they offer to applications, the protocols and networks that connect applications and nodes. It addresses issues such as performance and resilience, storage and backup.

We follow these steps in the discipline of technical architecture:

  • Forming a team structure
  • Create a skeletal system
  • Exploit patterns in an architecture
  • Ensure conformance to an architecture
  • Building domain-specific languages

Ecrux defines two important processes in terms of technical architecture; technical process and organization process:

The Technical Process

Technical Process is to be defined unambiguously. The main deliverable for a software architect is the architecture documentation, motivating and describing the structure of the system through various views. However, though system structuring forms a basis for the architectural design process, it is just one of several activities critical to the creation of a good architecture. In order to make such a deliverable to be able to instruct software developers, the following model can be used.

First architectural requirements are needed to focus the structuring activities. These requirements are then input to produce Architecture specifications. At the end, a validation phase provides early indicators and opportunities to resolve problems with the architecture. The model contains an iterative part, indicating that the Architecture validation can be input for new requirements.

The Organization Process

Architecture projects are susceptible to three major organizational sources of failure:

  • The project is under-resourced or cancelled by an uncommitted management
  • The project is stalled with infighting or a lack of leadership
  • The architecture is ignored or resisted by project managers.

The organizational process helps address these pitfalls. Two phases—namely Init/Commit and Deployment—bookend the technical process. However, the principal activities in these phases, namely championing the architecture and leading/teaming in Init/Commit, and consulting in Deployment, also overlap with the technical process activities.

By getting involved in the technical architecture of a system, we are able to identify flaws in the system early and counteract them as well as provide a study for our clients so they understand what we are trying to achieve and our approach to the end goal.
