Abstract

Since 2007 Siemens has released several learning and certification programs for software, system, and test architects as part of the Software Initiative Curriculum. Due to their positive influence in their own organizations, certified architects have gained high visibility and more appreciation over the years. A key element of the Siemens curriculum is active management of the network of certified architects across an organization. Major elements of this approach include dedicated social network groups, wikis, alumni meetings, and company-wide improvement projects with volunteering certified architects. This presentation gives an overview of how to manage these networking elements and discusses the effort behind it.
