Architecture is ...

Architecture is ... like a bridge that connects between business and technology.

Its purpose is twofold:
  1. Helps business people better understand technology

  2. Helps technology people better understand business

Architecture is ... really more like three different bridges since there are actually three different types of architecture:

  1. enterprise architecture (global)

  2. domain-specific architecture (cross-functional, cross-organizational)

  3. software architecture (project-centric)

Architecture is ... like a braided rope bridge consisting of three intertwined strands that correspond to:

  1. modeling

  2. documentation

  3. communication
