What is Architecture?

ANSI/IEEE Std 1471-2000 defines architecture as: “the fundamental organization of a system, embodied in its components, their relationships to each other and the environment, and the principles governing its design and evolution.”

Personally I am fan of the Bredemeyer team. Their definition in their VAP process is a lot more ‘punchy’, and makes a good deal more sense to a business audience. They simply put it as:

“The Technical Expression of Business Strategy”.
