I’ve just published a new Pragmatic Architect (#pragarch) column in IEEE Software on thinking about new metaphores for architecture work. I have found that the metaphor “architecting in the gaps” can help software development teams clearly understand the software architect’s role and how architecture contributes to a system’s overall efficiency.

See if you agree. The article is here (with no paywall) and a draft version is on the Writing page on this site.
