Novantus (a Jersey based cinematic/media production company) and I have recorded a version of my recent BCS Jersey presentation entitled The role of the software architect in successful projects. This video, part 1 in a series of webisodes, introduces the session by presenting some of the reasons behind software project failure and why software architects typically have a bad reputation.
p.s. this presentation is more or less the same as Why Software Projects Fail, which I delivered last year at the "Software Architect 2008" conference.
Simon is an independent consultant specializing in software architecture, and the author of Software Architecture for Developers (a developer-friendly guide to software architecture, technical leadership and the balance with agility). He’s also the creator of the C4 software architecture model and the founder of Structurizr, which is a collection of open source and commercial tooling to help software teams visualise, document and explore their software architecture.
