Software architecture design

What we offer

Software system architecture planning is a complex process. It involves in-depth research, requirements gathering, gap analysis, and various estimations. First and foremost, with us, you get a thorough review of your functional and non-functional requirements. We align your system architecture with these needs to ensure that the software works correctly, provides the required functions. As well, you get tailored estimations of the total cost of ownership, scope, timelines, etc.

Talking about exact software design and architecture options, there are different patterns and solutions. It may be difficult to filter the most suitable ones. Our experts can help by analyzing your business, software, goals, and ways to achieve them. Usually, we suggest one of the five best practices during our software architecture consulting. If you want to get another solution, don’t hesitate to express your needs, so we can research and propose more tailored options.

Event-driven architecture

Many programs may spend much time waiting for the actual tasks. To minimize this waiting time and improve performance, you can get event-driven architecture. Basically, it features a central hub that delegates tasks to modules. Each transfer is known as an event, and functional parts launch only when they see it.

Microkernel or plug-in architecture

The majority of digital solutions rely on several repetitive processes like “extract, name, upload” or “download, validate, send”, etc. You can put these core tasks into the microkernel. Also, you can get various plug-ins for more specific processes. With this architecture, you can simplify routine but keep tasks flexible.

Microservices architecture

Instead of monoliths with poor performance over time, microservices offer a simpler and flexible approach. Software design and architecture provide for several small programs that cover specific functional areas, focusing on a single responsibility. Microservices can interact with each other and launch only when needed.

Multi-tier or N-tier architecture

This model provides for several layers built around one core database. When information enters such a solution, it interacts with all layers subsequently, from top to bottom. Each tier has specific tasks: data validation, reformatting, demonstration, storing. This software system architecture focuses on the segregation of presentation and data processing, scalability, and security.

Space-based architecture

While the multi-tier architecture relies on databases, it can fail under high load. To avoid this, you can use the space-based model. It divides processing and storage tasks between different servers, using multiple nodes for data-related processes. Thus, you can eliminate databases and store datum in RAM to speed up basic things.

Software development begins with software architecture designs. This initial stage provides for building the first model, analyzing requirements and final goals. Our architects design the most efficient concepts to meet your needs. As a result, you get a tailored software architecture design that defines structures, use cases, and requirements for your digital solution

Today, you want to get robust, scalable, and adaptable architecture. To get such a platform that will enable core values for your business, professional expertise is required. We’re ready to help you through custom software architect design. With us, you can make the most efficient architectural decisions: languages, frameworks, platforms.

Various scenarios and cases for your solution

Depending on your requirements, we can tailor the designed architecture to different use cases. Again, it’s essential to communicate properly to get the best software.

Our custom software design and architecture

Architecture-related services include several phases. Everything begins with software architecture consulting, during which we analyze the target environment for the requested solution. The next steps include the design or, in other words, the development of architecture. You can see how the solution works thanks to various tests and evaluations. As well, you can get further upgrades from our team to keep your software efficient and optimized.

You can be sure of the quality of architecture because we adhere to SOLID principles of design and programming. They help to minimize errors and boost project success chances.

AnalysisHelps to understand the environmental features and gather your requirements. We collect functional requirements that include the requested features of the system. Non-functional ones reflect the desired performance levels. A software architect consultant provides cost and time estimations, proposed architectural solutions.
DesignAfter software architecture consulting, actual development begins. The gathered requirements help us to develop suitable architectures and implement them.
TestingThrough several evaluation rounds, we check how the system is working, is it satisfying core requirements. Tests run regularly during and after the design phase.
MaintenanceAt any time after the completion, you can get your architecture redesigned or upgraded. Maintenance helps to add new modules and optimize existing ones.

What impacts your project duration

Software architecture consulting can’t be estimated before initial discussion and, ideally, requirements gathering. We have to understand:

  • Project requirements
  • Expected deadlines
  • Team composition
  • The available technologies and platforms
  • The chosen architectural pattern

What affects your project costs

All software architecture projects are different in expenses, as well. To estimate costs, a software architecture consultant needs the set of your requirements:

  • Project scope and complexity
  • The chosen technology
  • Project completion urgency
  • Engagement model: Fixed Price, Time and Material, Dedicated Team
  • Customization of generic architectural components

What we need from your side

Your contribution is required for the best results. Without close cooperation between developers and clients, software architecture consulting and design projects are virtually doomed. Your exact responsibilities often include:

  • Project goals, vision, and roadmap if exist
  • High-level project requirements
  • Project-specific documentation if available, e.g., software architecture and mockups
  • A couple of hours per week for requirements gathering sessions
  • Project deadlines

Frequently asked questions

What are the different types of software architecture?

Software architecture services are diverse because of various architecture filters. The most famous ones include: event-driven and space-driven models, microkernel, microservices, and N-tier architecture options.

What is the role of software architecture?

In general, this service delivers the primary blueprint of your software solution. It defines the complexity, relations between parts, requirements, architectural styles and decisions, and so on. After IT architecture consulting, you can understand your planned software better.

What is a good software architecture?

While the exact metrics and criteria depend on each project, good software architecture services are ones that meet the client’s goals. If you’re satisfied after the completion, then everything’s fine. In other cases, there may be issues. Anyways, we’re always ready to improve the architecture.

What is a software architecture diagram?

It’s a visual representation of the architecture itself. Diagrams represent functions and modules of the solution divided into layers. They also set how each part interacts with other elements, users, datum, etc.

Do software architects write code?

Yes and no. On the one hand, architects should code to maintain their proficiency in development, to keep in touch with the solutions they design. On the other hand, their main activities aren’t related to coding only, so they shouldn’t spend all the time writing code.
