Documenting architecture

Need a practical template for your architecture document? Feel free to use mine! If you are a stakeholder in a development project, demand that the project delivers architecture documentation that meets this standard.

Over the years I have developed a useful template for documenting solution architectures. It is based on a combination of the Software Architecture Document template from the Rational Unified Process and the Software Systems Architecture book/website by Nick Rozanski and Eoin Woods.

Read more about my solution architecture template, download it for your own use, and get guidance on how to use it in your own work.
