What is required of architecture professionals in managing architecture evolution? Will the field naturally emerge, or will it require the intervention of architects? Roger Evernden addresses these issues, and much more, in this webinar (recorded April 6, 2016).

Evernden discusses factors that most apply to evolution, including:

  • Categories (subject areas)
  • Understanding
  • Presentation
  • Responsibility
  • Evolution

In addition, Evernden discusses the typical uses of Architecture Evolution Frameworks, including:

  • To present a clear vision of the required future state of EA, the options available to achieve this vision, and the intermediate states that EA needs to pass through to get there.
  • To ensure that the necessary vehicles — programs, projects, or other funded and resource initiatives — are in place to achieve the necessary architectural change.
  • To plan the optimal sequencing of change — both to ensure success and to make the best use of available resources and funding. This includes analyzing and checking that all relationships and dependencies between architecture components have been considered.
  • To ensure that all stakeholders understand the longer-term architectural context for short-term investments and change.
