According to this article, Matt Deacon is suggesting that a single unified architect certification be created.  On the face of it, this seems like a good idea.  The challenge that has to be overcome first is a single unified view of what an architect does.  And if we can get to that view – which may include definitions of different types of architect – we’ll have moved architecture as a discipline a good way forward.  Which has to be a good thing.  As it stands now, I hold an ISEB Certificate in Architecture – which is predicated on a particular view of what architects do.  How it stacks up against other certifications – Microsoft’s, Sun’s, TOGAF’s, BEA’s etc. – is a matter of opinion and debate.  Personally, I prefer the TOGAF, Microsoft and ISEB approach which emphasize what I consider to be architectural skills as opposed to platform/vendor specific specialisms.
