Sustainable software architectures

𝗡𝗮𝗰𝗵𝗵𝗮𝗹𝘁𝗶𝗴𝗸𝗲𝗶𝘁 is also playing an increasingly important role in 𝗦𝗼𝗳𝘁𝘄𝗮𝗿𝗲-𝗘𝗻𝗴𝗶𝗻𝗲𝗲𝗿𝗶𝗻𝗴. The aim here is to secure investments in the development, adaptation and procurement of systems in the long term and to provide high-quality software architectures in the long term.

There are two challenges here:

Quality is not an absolute, but a highly individual, company-specific benchmark. It is often understood to mean “only” that a software does not crash, is documented, etc.

Much more important, however, are the company-specific quality criteria that ensure that the software works well i͟m͟ ͟U͟n͟t͟e͟r͟n͟e͟h͟m͟e͟n͟, that interfaces are robust, that your infrastructure and data flows are taken into account and that the software fits your company processes.

So in order to design sustainable software architectures, you should define as precisely as possible what quality means in your company and what your benchmarks are.

We live in incredibly fast-moving times. There are new technological developments, trends and currents almost every week. And this will continue for a while (or forever).

In order to work sustainably in this environment in the long term, it is necessary to set up L͟e͟i͟t͟p͟l͟a͟n͟k͟e͟n͟ and S͟o͟l͟l͟b͟r͟u͟c͟h͟s͟t͟e͟l͟l͟e͟n͟.

The guard rails are selected in such a way that they will most likely still be stable in 5-10 years’ time. You deliberately allow for flexibility at the predetermined breaking points. Both are tailored to your IT strategy. This means you can always integrate modern trends on a secure foundation.
