The Architect is responsible for ensuring that the solution will operate cohesively within the customer’s information technology infrastructure. There are five specializations:
- The Business Process Analyst works with the Business Process Designer to create detailed models of the automation of the business process. This specialization is useful in particular for re-engineering efforts.
- The Use Case Specifier defines the user stories or use cases that describe the scenarios the end users will apply within the solution. This specialization is always present in projects.
- The Database Designer defines the logical and physical data model of the solution. The database designer integrates the solution’s data model into the customer’s enterprise data model. This specialization is always present in software projects.
