Who is a Software Architect ?
On googling, I found some very informative links on what makes a Software architect. Some are very abstract, but can easily relate to realistic functions. Typical activities/scope of the role of architect from HP's website. http://www.architecture.external.hp.com/Overview/arch_who_architect.htm Architect Pages from IBM library http://www-106.ibm.com/developerworks/rational/library/1854.html Duties of Software Architect from SEI http://www.sei.cmu.edu/ata/arch_duties.html Becoming an Architect article at Artima. http://www.artima.com/intv/architect.html World Wide Institute of Software Architects http://www.wwisa.org Architect role page from wwisa http://www.wwisa.org/wwisamain/role.htm The role of Architect - article www.bredemeyer.com/pdf_files/ArchitectRole.PDF
