    The SEI Architecture Tradeoff Analysis Method® (ATAM®) is a proven, highly effective method for systematically evaluating software architectures for fitness of purpose. The ATAM exposes architectural risks that potentially inhibit the achievement of quality attribute goals and the system’s business and mission goals. Government and industry organizations have used the ATAM for over 10 years to improve communication, expose architectural risks, clarify requirements, and produce better systems.

    This infosheet describes the courses required to earn an Architecture Tradeoff Analysis Method (ATAM) Evaluator Certificate and the benefits of obtaining the certificate. The certificate prepares a qualified software professional to perform SEI-authorized ATAM architecture evaluations as part of a team, led by an SEI-certified Evaluation Team Leader.
