Get Involved in SEI Research

The SEI is conducting a survey to understand more about the extent to which architectural concerns play a role in agile software development. In particular, the goal of this survey is to understand some of the existing practices used to quantify architecture. This topic is of growing importance. As successful agile techniques are applied to larger and larger projects, they require increased visibility into the architecture of the system. Your participation is important to allow the SEI to correctly characterize the nature of the problem and to understand some solutions that people have found useful.

The survey is entirely voluntary. It should take less than 10 minutes to complete. All information provided in the survey will be treated as confidential information and will not be shared. Take the survey now. This study is being conducted by the Software Engineering Institute at Carnegie Mellon University, a federally funded research and development center. If you would like more information or would like to be informed of the results of the research, please send email to
