A canvas provides a structured framework that facilitates the visualization of key elements of a system. Based upon ideas from the famous Business Model Canvas we created three different canvases to suit your current needs:
- The “Architecture Inception Canvas” is based upon Patrick Roos’ original work “Software Architecture Canvas”, and adresses greenfield approaches to software development. Additional info here.
- The “Architecture Communication Canvas” helps to communicate key elements of existing software architectures. Consider it to be the zip-version of conventional arc42 documentation. Addition info here.
- Finally, the tech stack canvas is a new approach by INNOQ to have all relevant technologies of your stack documented on a single page. Document the planned technologies for a new project but also document the status quo of existing products. Highly recommended!
