What is the Solution Architect?

The solution architect organizes the development effort. Employees working as solution architects bear the responsibility for the vision underlying the solution and turning this vision into the solution. To create effective architectures required for the solution, they have to balance numerous development concepts. In the process of converting requirements into architecture, solution architects also do extensive research targeted at testing technologies and approaches that are indispensable to the architecture. 

Another responsibility of solution architects is reviewing patterns that may be useful to the architecture. Doing this allows them to refresh their memory of the details of the pattern and decide what guidance to provide for its further use. Often, the solution architect is expected to motivate and guide development leads and explain to them how different pieces will fit together at a higher level. Solution architects need also know how to make the architecture elegant, because elegance helps maintain cohesion between various parts of the design.   

Solution architects are paid handsomely and they form a key part of the development team that provides significant value to the company. Because the solution architect interacts with members of the development team and the user community, this role is also very visible. Seize an opportunity to get prepared with JobTestPrep’s exclusive practice materials and secure for yourself the position of the solution architect at IKEA.
