System Architect Definition

The system architect has the task of putting together the skeleton of a software project. Depending on the specifications gathered by the requirements analyst, the system architect will choose to focus on ease of maintenance, application performance, compatibility with existing systems, or a combination of all three. Each decision that the system architect makes has to be carefully considered because a wrong move the beginning of a project can have damaging effects later in the software development life cycle.
