SATURN 2015 Awards Conferred

Since 2010, the SEI and IEEE have been conferring two attendee-selected awards at SATURN. The IEEE Software SATURN Architecture in Practice Presentation Award is given to the presentation that best describes experiences, methods, and lessons learned from the implementation of architecture-centric practices. This year’s award winners were Jochem Schulenklopper and Eelco Rommes of inspearit for their presentation titled Why They Just Don’t Get It: Communicating Architecture to Business Stakeholders.

The second award, the IEEE Software SATURN New Directions Presentation Award, is given to the presentation that best describes innovative new approaches and thought leadership in the application of architecture-centric practices. This year’s award winners were Rebecca Wirfs-Brock of Wirfs-Brock Associates and Joseph Yoder of The Refactory, Inc. for their presentation titled QA to AQ: Shifting from Quality Assurance to Agile Quality.

In addition to reflecting the high regard of SATURN attendees, these awards also contribute to the maturation of the practice of software architecture by recognizing sound and innovative practices.
