Coherent view of how Architecture should be performed

To have a coherent view of how Architecture should be performed, it is necessary to first have an understanding of its component parts.  Clearly it is also necessary to distinguish between the i) Architect…Person doing the architecture, ii) the Architecture…the result and iii) Architecting…. the actual process.

Fundamental to this level of understanding is the recognition that in Architecture, there are three and only three, types of Architecture.  These are:

  1. Enterprise Architecture
  2. Domain Architecture
  3. Solution Architecture

Subtypes to the above such as Business Architecture, Process Architecture, Information Architecture and the like are often incorrectly portrayed as the elementary building blocks for architecture.  Sufficient understanding of each type is required since each drive different behaviors and deliveries.
