Abstract

After years of research and industrial practice, the software architecture community has acquired a mature understanding of essential technological issues and is turning its attention to understanding the interaction of architecture with the business and strategy of the organization. However, understanding the value created by architecture is proving to be a difficult and elusive task. Agile approaches are making a positive contribution in this area, but managing architecture for value seems to require yet another mindset. This talk will explore the topic of architecture and value creation from several points of view, including a perspective of corporate strategy and finance.
