Tools for Architects

Overview:  As an architect we use multiple tools, it's a good idea to standardise tool usage especially in larger businesses. It's pretty common to se architects using different tool for drawing architecture diagrams (viso,,...)

Common Drawing tool I've seen architects use:

  • Visio
  • Balsamiq (my odd tool of choice)
  • Miro (great for sharing)
  • PowerPoint (sic. but it happens and some architects are good with it)

Tools for Retrieving Azure Architecture and creating documentation:

Enterprise Architecture Tooling:

  • Sparx
  • Archimate

Dev Tooling I use a lot:

  • Visual Studio
  • SQL Server Management Studio 
  • Postman/Swagger
