Reflecting Stakeholder Perspectives in Architecture Reviews

  • This presentation was created for a conference series or symposium and does not necessarily reflect the positions and views of the Software Engineering Institute.
  • Abstract

    This presentation will describe the output of a research project that has explored the relationship between evaluation methods in the domains of software systems and service design. The results of this research, which build on the collaborative and inclusive nature of the Architecture Tradeoff Analysis Method (ATAM), are now being adopted for software architecture reviews in Emirates Group IT. 

    The presentation will draw on recent example architecture reviews to demonstrate the incorporation of a risk model so that tradeoffs are analyzed in terms of risk; the adoption and incorporation of a stakeholder model so that tradeoffs among stakeholder groups can be analyzed in addition to tradeoffs among quality characteristics; and the adoption of an industry-standard quality model, enabling wider comparison of architecture reviews between projects. 

    The author gratefully acknowledges the sponsorship of Public Service Management Wales and the Office for National Statistics, which has facilitated this research.
