Whatever the long-term impact of software architecture may turn out to be,
an appropriate starting point is a concrete appraisal of the current state
of the practice in the use of software architecture. It is the purpose of
this panel to take a step in this direction. By assembling a panel of
experts with a broad base of experience in the area, we hope to provide
concrete examples of what is now possible when architectural principles
are applied to industrial problems in systematic ways, to consider the
potential impact of software architecture over the next few years, and to
suggest steps that should be taken to bring this about.
