The need for architecture documentation often gets ignored, and teams start working on implementation without understanding the overall architecture. A SAD provides a broad view of the overall solution design to keep all stakeholders informed.

The SAD helps to achieve the following goals:

  • Communicate the end-to-end application solution to all stakeholders

  • Provide traceability of the solution back to business requirements and look at how the application will meet all functional and non-functional requirements (NFRs)
  • Provide all views of the solution required for design, building, testing, and implementation
  • Define the impacts of the solution for estimation, planning, and delivery purposes
