Gather Functional Requirements
This may require working closely with sales team members and enterprise architects to gain a complete sense of client expectations and limitations before undertaking a major development project. As part of this process, the Solution Architect may examine existing systems and programs to identify areas for improvement and integration.

Develop Specifications
A Solution Architect uses her/his familiarity with functional requirements and existing systems to develop project specifications. She/he may develop schedules and test plans, prepare documentation based on analyst reports, and assemble documents presenting project guidelines and milestones to team members. At the same time, a Solution Architect may identify potential issues between systems and client specifications and propose new solutions to work around these limitations.

Determine Project Scope
A Solution Architect is also responsible for determining a project’s scope before developers begin any major work. They may conduct extra research on a client’s existing systems and configurations to determine whether added time and work is necessary to align the project with enterprise-level systems. They also identify areas where implementation may require more solutions to be successful. Throughout this process, the Solution Architect communicates directly with enterprise architects, developers, and clients.

Lead Development Team
Throughout the development lifecycle, she/he directs and oversees the activities of a team of developers, answering questions or helping to resolve issues as they arise. This aspect of the role requires the Solution Architect to ensure that specifications and requirements are clearly articulated to their development teams. They monitor timelines and progress to ensure that team members are adhering to these specifications.

Manage External Vendors
For many projects, the Solution Architect will work with outside vendors to develop and implement specific aspects of the software solution. This aspect of the role may require the solution architect to consider costs and timelines and ensure that vendors meet deadlines for deliverables and project elements.
