Architecture Enhancement

The purpose of a software architecture enhancement initiative is to collaborate with stakeholders to evaluate the current state of a digital solution or product from a general architectural perspective.

This is to ensure that the architecture aligns with current and future business objectives and technical requirements.

The activities will be tailored to the specific situation. In addition to a general review, it may also be relevant to take into consideration special requirements such as real-time capabilities and transaction performance, as well as the architecture’s openness for expansion and integration.

Dialog workshop
The enhancement initiative begins with a dialog with key stakeholders to understand the current situation and the business needs that motivate the initiative. This will guide us in defining the objectives of the initiative. 

The next activity is a thorough analysis of the existing architecture and infrastructure to understand its strengths and potential areas of improvement. By reviewing documentation and conducting dialogs with architects, developers, and business stakeholders we will gather valuable feedback and insights.

Integration and expansion
Another key activity is to assess the openness of the architecture for future expansion, integration, and maintenance. We will review the existing integration points and potential future needs for new integrations. Based on this, we will identify possible areas of improvement. 

Data requirements
If applicable, we will also look at the current data storage solution and its ability to meet current and future needs.

Strategy session
Following the analysis activities, we will get busy together with key stakeholders and experts. We will facilitate a workshop to discuss relevant findings, agree on important gaps and relevant areas of improvement, and prioritize enhancement activities.


The most important outcome of the enhancement initiative will be a shared, deep understanding of the current and desired future state of the software architecture. There will also be alignment among key stakeholders about important priorities. Findings and recommendations will be documented in a comprehensive report (Product Architecture Memorandum) which will include: 

  • Executive summary: An overview of the activities, highlighting key findings
    and recommendations for the next steps.
  • Assessment objectives: A summary of goals and objectives, providing context
    for the findings and recommendations.
  • Current state: A detailed analysis of the current state of the architecture and technology stack in use, including strengths, weaknesses, and key areas of improvement.
  • Quality attributes: A deep dive into the quality attributes that are particularly important to the product. This will include:
    Scalability: Assessment of the general scalability vs future needs and recommendations for scaling.
    Performance: Evaluation of the performance requirements vs current state.
    Data storage: Assessment of the data storage solutions in use.
    Integration: Evaluation of the architecture’s openness for expansion and integration. Proposing API and integration strategies when applicable.
  • Road map: Prioritized activities, timeline and resource requirements.

The memorandum will usually be presented- and discussed in a seminar format.
