Agile Turns Software Architects into Business Analysts

According to consultant Benjamin Day, Agile development methodologies are changing the job of the software architect. Today’s software architect has to be a combination project manager, forward thinker and business analyst. ?With the rise of Scrum, [development teams] aren?t doing big design up-front anymore,” said Day. “In my career, it?s more and more of a collaborative process within the development team to figure out what the right architecture is. Frequently, the architect is also the middle man between the dev side and business side, helping each to understand the other’s ideas and mission.”

IBM’s Tim Hahn agreed, saying, ?I?ve noticed with the passage of time that [architectural development] is much more of an iterative process. In the past, architects would go off into a room, create the architecture and hand it to coders or programmers. Now, teams design architecture, write a bit of code, and then tweak design and the architecture.”
