The importance of software architecture
Software architecture describes how all the different elements of an application will be arranged and how they interact with each other. This is a very critical stage of software development because it determines the stability, efficiency, and durability of the solution. Applications developed without an in-depth study may experience weaknesses and lose customers.
In absolute terms, there is no good or bad architecture, but it often happens that a certain architecture is not adapted to a project context. Software architecture is a balance between the technical, operational, and functional requirements of the application. This is where CRIM’s experts come in with their know-how. Furthermore, CRIM has a dedicated software development team that is involved in various projects to ensure the best results for you.
Software architecture essentials
Aspects to consider
First and foremost, it is necessary to assess the needs, functional and non-functional constraints of the software by considering the different types of users, means of accessing the software, expected performance, security, hosting, operating systems, technologies, resilience, etc.
Contribution to scientific advancement
Software architecture changes depending on the company and its intended use.
- Does the software need to respond quickly?
- How much data does it need to process?
- Should the data be centralised or distributed?
- How should users access the application from a network perspective?
- On what type of device?
- In what language, and with what type of keyboard?
