Reference Architecture

leave a comment »

A Reference Architecture can be a useful tool in communicating how a given business problem is solved.  This communication in turn helps to guard against wheel reinvention.  This article is a good overview of what constitutes a reference architecture.  The challenge once a reference architecture has been created is applying appropriate governance such that the reference architecture can evolve over time and does not stifle innovation whilst ensuring that the reference architecture is adopted in order to promote consistency, quality and rapid delivery (no cycles wasted solving a problem to which the solution is already known.)
