Architecture and Technology

In Cloud adoption, successful software patterns are needed to build successful cloud applications. In Chapter 2, we introduced a framework for cloud adoption that introduced architecture and technology as a key dimension. Certainly, it would be the job of an enterprise architect to define these patterns, but the ultimate measure of a successful framework is use in projects. In this chapter, we discuss the role of architecture in modern cloud projects and architects are a crucial to set direction and guidance for cloud migration. We also describe how Enterprise Architects drive workload analysis when modernizing large numbers of applications.
