Exploring the key principles of solution architecture
Architecture principles outline the fundamental procedures and guidelines that are required to design, build, and deploy a successful software solution. They are meant to influence your architecture approach and improve the quality attributes of the solution.
There are many principles out there that we can adopt in our methodology of work to prepare the design architecture. We can even define our own principles if we think they will add value to the architecture design or if we think they will efficiently improve the design process. Most importantly, we need to make sure we offer a good balance between theory and practice and that we adopt practical and powerful principles that will drive the business and technical changes in our solution's architectures.
In general, we should aim for between 10 and 20 guiding principles for our solution architecture practices. Make sure that you do not have too many principles. This...
