TERM DEFINITION(S)

Architecture

1. A complete and fully documented 360 degree profile of all things that represent a Solution Set for any relevant subject, topic, or problem area of interest, where such a profile often intentionally falls short of being a detailed design but instead exists to facilitate and act as input to detailed design activities.

2. A less stringent form of a detailed Design.

NOTE: Such a profile, as described in definition 1, includes but is not limited to: Business Strategy and Architecture Constructs; Current State Business and Technical Analysis; Future State Business and Technical Analysis, Future State Business and Technology Solutions Options; Ratified Solutions Options; and Realization Plans for such Solutions Options. These constructs are supported with a large set of Artifacts such as Blue Prints, Models, Analysis, Assessments and Plans that exist to facilitate all aspects of the Systems Development Life Cycle (SDLC), most importantly the area of detailed design.
