Press release from: iSAQB e. V.



At this year's General Meeting of the International Software Architecture Qualification Board from April 22 to 23, 2021, Mahbouba Gharbi and Stefan Tilkov were re-elected as Chairwoman of the Board and Vice Chairman of the Board for another two-year term.

"I am looking forward to our collaboration in the next two years. The iSAQB is excellently poised to help organizations worldwide to successfully manage digitization by means of sustainable software architectures," says Gharbi. The most important topics and challenges of her next term include the further international establishment of the role of "software architects" as a key role for the success of software projects as well as the expansion of CPSA curricula for a reasonable standardizing in education and training of IT professionals.

For the first time the board of the iSAQB was extended to three board members. Following his new election as an additional board member, Holger Tiemeyer takes over the position of Treasurer from Stefan Tilkov and at the same time the role of 2nd Vice Chairman of the Board. He commits his role as Head of the WG Universities to Dr. Guido Gryzcan.

Martin Lehmann, Patrick Müller, Stefan Toth, and Eberhard Wolff were confirmed as members of the Strategy Council for another two-year term. The Strategy Council is the central body for the maintenance and further development of the iSAQB's curriculum portfolio.

In the WG Universities, Dr. Guido Gryczan was elected as new Head of the WG. He takes over the role of Holger Tiemeyer, who moves on to the board of the iSAQB. The WG Universities is responsible for the expansion and maintenance of the academic partner network within the iSAQB. The WG supports and promotes young academics in the field of software architecture with a variety of measures.

A total of three new working groups were established by the iSAQB General Meeting: The WG Intermediate Level, the WG Train the Trainer, and the WG Diversity. The WG Intermediate is supposed to develop an additional certification level between Foundation Level and Advanced Level. The purpose is to bridge the certification path between the two existing levels and to provide an additional proof of valuable skills for subdomains of software architecture. Alexander Simon has taken over responsibility as Head of the WG with Martin Lehmann as Deputy Head.

The newly founded WG Train the Trainer has been instructed by the General Meeting to develop a training program for new iSAQB trainers. The train-the-trainer program is intended to prepare prospective trainers for the implementation of Foundation Level training courses and to permanently ensure the high quality of CPSA training. Alexander Lorz has been elected as Head of the WG. He will coordinate the work of the WG with Peter Götz as Deputy Head.

The WG Diversity is supposed to actively bring educational promotion in the field of vocational training and development to various groups (women, LGBTQI+, people of color, nationalities, people with disabilities, etc.) in order to promote diversity in software architecture. The WG does not work alone on this topic, but collaborates closely with other WGs, such as the WG Community or the WG Universities. The association would like to act as a pioneer and show that software architecture is a topic for everyone and should be just as diverse as the people for whom software is developed. Benjamin Wolf has been appointed Head of the WG Diversity.

Jens Kelkel was elected as confidant for the complaint management for participants of CPSA training courses.
