NICF- Evaluating Software Architectures

Overview

The foundation for any software system is its architecture. Most of the system’s quality attributes are precast once the architecture is laid down. It is therefore critical to be able to understand and evaluate proposed software architectures in order to make the correct architectural decisions.

This course explains the software architectural concepts with emphasis on software architectures evaluations. Via a combination of lectures and scenario-based workshops, the course prepares the participants to be able to evaluate software architectures and appreciate the potential trade-offs for their architectural decisions.

The objective of this course is to equip the managers and decision makers with architectural thinking skills so that they can make more informed decisions on the software architectures for their projects. 

This course is part of the Software Engineering & Design Series offered by NUS-ISS.

Upon successful completion of this course, you will earn 10 PDUs (Technical: 10) that can be used to maintain your PMP® credential.
