Wanted to throw a discussion as to how an architect interacts in a project during the project's life cycle. i.e. during the SDLC phase. (whatever methodology i.e. waterfall, rup, prototype etc)
Am keen to know how its being practiced. How is interaction done with the project team starting from Businss reqmts, feasibility and until design and move on. What do you do during testing. Pre-UAT, Post-UAT. Post deployment, training etc.
Pls. share your views.
Is there a website where I can find all these different roles (different architects) and how they map to the overall SDLC process ?
I have seen organizations including my current one which thinks architecture is only limited to design stage in the SDLC thats all. I want to read more on these i.e. duties of an architect or its various roles like you mentioned but in a proper SDLC. Can I find one somewhere. I searched through SEI CMM ...but could not
Assuming there is a team of architects ...enterprise wide, basically making architecture a seperate shop within the organization which does overlook projects horizontally and vertically.

I found an serie of articles about architecture on Rational Edge e-zine. They are not exactelly about how the architect interacts during the project's life cicle, but there is one that is about the process of architecting. I hope this may be useful for you.
