Top Quality Standards for Architecture Reviews

Bookmarks

InfoQ's research widget has been deprecated. It should continue to work however, and we hope to relaunch it at some point in the future.

Architecture is one of the most important elements in software development. Many organizations do architecture reviews due to its critical role. But different organizations in different industries and contexts have their own different standards of qualities. Finding out the most common ones might lead to better ways to develop and improve the standards for these organisations, and it's also give the community a common base to start discussion.

  • Doesn't work

    There seems to be some issue. After voting and proper authentication, I get "Please wait while we cast your vote..." forever and nothing happens. Is it just me ?

  • Needs context

    This is entirely meaningless - the answers to this are totally context dependent. For the replies to be useful, you need to understand the context at least in terms of application domain and application type. And probably more.

  • Bad design

    This survey is badly designed. There are basically two problems:
    1. Functional: Even if I am signed in, after I submitted vote, it asks me for my 3rd party ID. This smells to me as marketing trick to get some leads?
    2. Contextual: This survey lacks context. In order to answers have any real value there has to be some context inside which we are considering proposed qualities.

  • Functionality not that important?

    I found it very amusing that the functionality of the system is not number one concern here. Does it mean that architect prefer a system that does nothing, but is highly modular?

    Reviewing architecture has different concerns to reviewing functionality. It is not that functionality is not important, just that different tools (code inspection, testing, etc.) rather than architectural review are the best tools to address this concern.

    Inversely, given that any review has finite resources, the focus of architectural reviews are the concerns (Changeability, Buildability, etc.) which cannot be assessed by tools idea for addressing functionality and correctness.
