The highly successful software product is a tribute to the solid architecture. If the company follows the right direction from inception, the efficiency of the procedure will prove itself significant.
The plan on how to do the transition from function to form is called Product Architecture. It is a way to organize the features of the product in order to observe the faults more clearly and analyze the connections between all functions.
The main division of the architecture types in the IT product:
Modular Architecture: Modular scheme deals with the numerous features and thoroughly analyses the relationship between features of the product. Thus, it is acclaimed to be a way to achieve the highest quality of the product, excluding the faults, building a purified mechanism
Integral Architecture: Integral scheme dwells exactly on the features and their functions, purposes, and capacities. Consequently, it helps to reduce the funding due to its facilitated procedure and to boost the outcome.
What is the approach to Architecture of the IT product building?
First and foremost the explicit outline of the requirements is established. The professionals consult their clients to clarify the main functional and non-functional requirements. By doing so, they pave the way to an impressive outcome, excluding the threat of adherence to false needs and deviation from the plan.
Secondly, a deeper analysis follows where each element of the product is examined. At this stage comes the understanding of the major difficulties that the requirements provoke and the architects make up a plan of the requirements in order to detect those which do not correlate to each other and may cause failure.
Then the observation stage begins, aiming to foresee the full picture of the product and create diagrams that will help to get the information about the interaction between core features.
Subsequently, developers create the prototype of the project which covers the need to assess the viability of the project, inspect all the changes and actions they have made and generate the data essential for further improvements.
The final stage is dedicated to discovering and processing the non-functional requirements, which establish the characteristics of the software. They include the performance indicators, the potential to scale the software, the ability of data to be flexible and easily transmitted, as well as the level of product’s extensibility, in other words, tolerance to further enlargements, and its compliance.
The product’s architect must execute all these stages with the utmost quality, as their development is predominantly integral to the successful product’s creation. What are the levers of effectiveness they are responsible for? Let’s summarize:
1. The clients’ satisfaction is conditional primarily on the product’s architecture. Due to the interaction with the stakeholders and embracing their feedback in the developmental process, as well as informing them about the latest updates, the architect builds a firm relationship ensuring long-term contract stability.
2. With the thorough work of the architects, the staff coordination is managed more efficiently. Having built the intuitive visual database, it provides the facilitated onboarding process and takes charge of market analysis circles and clients’ demands. Exquisite technological architecture aids in demonstrating the product and attracting the stakeholders.
3. Progressive technologies are applied with the architecture approach. It is responsible for observing the new tendencies and strategies for the project and its professionals constantly seek ways and tools to add new and competitive improvements. The architecture system allows conducting various testing and prototyping moves, to prove the usefulness of each idea. After the visualized analysis, the most beneficial strategy is opted for.
4. Product Architecture supports the constraints’ arrangements. To the list of such limitations belong technology, risk, scope, cost, quality, timing, and resources. Only by building flawless architecture, does the risk of failure fades out. The architecture base copes with all the constraints as its main feature is to compare and contrast the approaches and select the most suitable one. By doing so, the project gets the justified option of the route, with all time, money, staff, and equipment issues approved.
5. An excellent level of product architecture indicates a decent level of Non-Functional Requirements. The stakeholders and clients, investing in the product’s architecture, make sure the security operations, performance issues, maintenance, scalability, and usefulness have risen to the supreme extent. Also, it allows installing bounded and also independent NFRs.
On the whole, Solution Architecture gives a chance for developers to form a solid ground for their project creation. Due to the full-circle testing, observation, analyzing and trying of different strategies, the possibility to elicit the best one appears. All the efforts that are spared in building the architecture, prove to be effective as the outcome of such ends up being the high class.
