The Software Curriculum team of Siemens Healthineers has been selected for the Linda M. Northrop Software Architecture Award. The award is given to an individual or team that has used software architecture to significantly improve practices, outcomes, or both in an organization or in the software-development community.

The software curriculum began at Siemens in 2006 and focused on the critical role of the software architect of mission-critical, large complex systems. A main focus was on the central role the architect plays in business strategy, requirements, quality, and leadership. At Siemens Healthineers, the curriculum is well anchored in the people-development processes as part of a technical career path and aligned with related training programs. The members of the team have also taken the time to share their experiences with the larger software engineering community. Their leadership raised the awareness of the software architect’s role and challenged the software engineering community to adopt software architecture practices.
