Abstract

This work faces two problems originated on the organizational computational systems environment and proposes a methodology to design a reference software architecture oriented to facilitate the evolution of legacy systems and the integration of autonomous applications. The methodology improves software architectures design process and adds elements to take advantage of the retroalimentation that comes from applying architectural models to the development of new systems. In this way it helps to create a framework that simplifies and reduces costs of evolution, integration and replacement of software systems.
