Architecture, Architecting and Architect, terms heard a lot nowadays. A couple of years ago we called someone programming software applications a programmer, now such a person is called a Solution Architect. Much more examples can be given according to the number of job descriptions containing the word ‘Architect'. Yes, I have to admit, my contract also states that I am an Architect. However, if the work an Architect does is architecting and the result of that work is an architecture, most job descriptions seems to be a little bit inaccurate in my opinion. To make that more clear, I will define what the architecture of a system is.
