Solution design may have a broad impact across numerous projects in an organization, which demands a careful evaluation of the various properties of the architecture while also striking a balance between them. This chapter will provide a holistic understanding of each attribute, and how they are interrelated and coexist in solution design.

There may be more attributes than covered here, depending on the solution's complexity, but in this chapter, you will learn about the common characteristics that can be applied to most aspects of solution design. You can also view them as non-functional requirements (NFRs), which fulfill an essential aspect of design. It is the responsibility of a solution architect to look at all the attributes and make sure that they satisfy the desired requirements and fulfill customer expectations.
