OutSystems and Microsoft Low Code Changes and Architecture Career

Architecture Professionals and Responsibilities

Enterprise architect

The enterprise architect is responsible to oversee the entire corporate tech ecosystem and usually uses a framework for that. According to Science Direct (Pragmatic Enterprise Architecture), there are over 50 frameworks that are labeled enterprise architecture framework but the main focus here will be Togaf, Zachman framework and DODAF .

Solution Architect

Gartner defines Solution Architecture as an architectural description of a specific solution. Solution Architectures combine guidance from different enterprise architecture viewpoints (business, information and technical), as well as from the enterprise solution architecture. Therefore, the solution architect is the person in charge of leading the practice and introducing of overall technical vision for a particular solution.

Software Architect

The architecture of a system is a comprehensive framework that describes its form and structure — its components and how they fit together (Jerrold Grochow). The software architect(SA) is responsible for creating a responsive and resilient system taking design decisions according to system requirements and the architecture is the mean for that.

Conclusion

Low code is changing towards a new level of process improvement automation and the IT professional needs to adapt himself/herself to follow up the changes. Architecture can focus on different levels of organisation and contribute to improve process productivity in a very rational “planned” way.
