Total architecture defines the structure and organization of business processes, people, information, and systems. Today's business processes and information systems have become so hopelessly intertwined that it is no longer possible to design one without altering the other: they have to be designed together. This design also defines the structure and organization of the people and information involved in the process.
Total architecture extends the principles of scenario-based design to encompass entire business processes. It builds upon Barry Boehm’s spiral methodologies and leverages UML to implement the IEEE Std 1471-2000 IEEE Recommended Practice for Architectural Description of Software-Intensive Systems.
This site is intended to serve as a focal point for total architecture, both theory and practice.
