Designing effective software has always been a challenging endeavour, but "challenging" has taken on a whole new meaning lately with all the options, trends and influences flying around the IT landscape. Modernization has bred concepts such as Digital Transformation, Cloud Computing, Web APIs, IoT, Serverless, etc., which are proving to be much more than just buzzwords and are consistently altering both the business and the technical side of what we understand as Software Architecture.

From the perspective of a solution architect, many things have actually changed in just a few years. And "Change" is indeed the keyword here, as the ability to enable, manage, leverage and generally deal with it, has become a critical asset to thrive in this particular role. Also, with so much in our plates, we need to stay level-headed even as we mix it up in the search for the scalable, flexible and cost-effective solutions demanded by a hyper-competitive market.

But what do we really mean when we apply the term "Modern" to Software Architecture?; which qualities, attributes or else need to be there for a system to be labeled as "Modern"?. As always, there’s no silver bullet, panache or manifest which will let us achieve all of our goals and solve all of our problems. However, there are plenty of building blocks which in the right configuration can sketch out interesting paths towards innovation, modernization and beyond. There’s also no textbook definition which can suffice in this regard, for at the end of the day, the concept of a "Modern" Architecture can be much better understood under the light of our day-to-day reality and the ever evolving relationship between information systems and human society.
