Application Architecture

Application architecture is the discipline for designing applications. It provides designers with a roadmap to create a successful app. This architecture outlines everything needed to build and deploy an app, including software components, interfaces, internal and external systems, and all the interactions between them. Application architecture styles such as service-oriented architecture (SOA) provide best practices that improve design decisions, patterns, and solutions.

What Small and Midsize Businesses Need to Know About Application Architecture

Small app developers use application architecture to identify redundancies in the app-building process, helping them save money and get their products to market faster. The right application architecture can also improve application performance, helping smaller companies compete in crowded mobile app markets.
