The software architecture is one of the first and most important decisions in the software design process. A well-designed software architecture forms the basis for software that can perform in the long term. The architecture is especially important in complex development, where it ensures consistent quality, expandability and sustainability of the software.
Optimal interaction of all systems and software components as well as their connections and communications
High-quality software that is productive, expandable and productive in the long term
Extendable architecture provides option for new features and connection to additional software
Large enterprise projects unify numerous systems and applications. Quality software therefore requires excellent planning and an optimal architecture:
Software architecture provides a global overview of the structures and characteristics of a software system, which is disassembled into individual components. It describes the basic functionalities of the software components (functional architecture), the interaction and communication among the components (component architecture) as well as the distribution to hardware- and software resources. The goal of software architecture is meeting the requirements, robustness against changes as well as an excellent usability of the software system.
The software architecture is determined in particular by non-functional, qualitative software criteria such as security, modifiability, maintainability and performance. Quality features of software are:
The software architecture is one of the first and most important decisions in creating a concept for the software. The architecture is developed in the context of the the corporate structure, i.e. it takes into account all business processes, roles, organizational structures and IT. In this context, economic goals such as cost- and risk minimization, benefit optimization and automation are the focus. Important factors to consider when planning the appropriate software architecture are project planning and risk analysis, the development process, organization and workflows, requirements and quality assurance.
Domain-Driven Design is a method for modeling complex, object-oriented software. This approach focuses on the business and professional requirements (domain) of software development. The method enables a comprehensive understanding of the requirements, which forms the basis of individual software solutions.
The domain model describes elements, structure and processes of your doamin using object-oriented concepts in easy-to-understand, domain-specific language. It depicts the relevant business- and technical connections in a task-oriented way and forms the kernel of your software. The domain modell is built in several development cycles and optimized and extended, using an iterative approach. In this way, your business- and professional processes are better and more fully reflected and deliver a valuable knowledge base
The MVC model is a proven solution approach for structuring software development. It is used to create a clearer, maintainable and flexible program code. The MVC paradigm comprises three components:
Solid basis for durable high-quality software
Securing permanently powerful applications
Flexible structure enables integration of future features and applications
Foundation for a long-term software solution
Overview of components, functions and relationships
Optimal integration of applications into legacy systems and existing IT environments
Depiction, optimization and automation of business processes
Collaborative planning and close coordination with the customer
Open Source solutions mean you are not dependent on software vendors
