Solution Architect Career Path program by Uplatz is a blend of all courses that can help you on the path to become a successful Solutions Architect.


Solution Architects possess a balanced mix of technical and business skills, and are responsible for the design of one or more applications or services within an organization. This can take the form of products or services, and involves integrating the software and hardware that will best meet requirements. Once solution architects are given a problem, they are not only in charge of finding the answers, but of actively leading the technical vision to success. Most solution architects have spent many years in the software development world and have therefore learned dozens of tools designed to help them be more effective and productive. They are typically part of a solution development team, often working with enterprise architects and computer network architects for strategic planning discussions. Their main focus is on the technical decisions being made regarding the solution and how they impact the business outcomes. The rest of the development team will then use the information to implement the solution.


Solution architects focus on:

1) How technology can be used to solve a given business problem

2) Which framework, platform, or tech-stack can be used to create a solution

3) How the application will look, what the modules will be, and how they interact with each other

4) How things will scale for the future and how they will be maintained

5) Understanding and mitigating the risk in third-party frameworks/platforms

6) Finding a solution to a business problem

Skills needed to become a solutions architect

Some of the key skills that companies look for when hiring a solutions architect.


1) Hard skills

a) Data architecture: This is the ability to structure and maintain data in a way that it becomes valuable to the business. Many companies now accumulate tons of data from their business platforms, and they need solutions that build and manage models to visualize it. 

b) Governance framework: It outlines the structure of an organization and highlights the role of each position and the power chain for decision-making. A framework sets standards, rules, and regulations for all the processes in an organization. Solutions architects use data governance frameworks to make decisions when developing a solution.  

c) IT strategy: A part of a solutions architect’s job is to plan, create, manage, and implement a solution to a specific business problem. Having a good IT strategy means being capable of forming efficient steps to approach tech-related issues.

d) Enterprise architecture: It is a set of structures that determine how an organization can achieve its entrepreneurial goals. As solutions architects act as the main connection between enterprise and technology, they need to understand both sides of things.

e) Object-oriented programming: In solutions architecture, the most used languages are object-oriented programming languages. Therefore, being proficient at any OOP language like Java or Python is a must in this industry. 

f) Agile: It is a set of rules and methodologies used to develop a product. It optimizes the whole process to make it faster. This is mostly applied in tech companies, so familiarity with the concept will give you a push in the job market.  

g) DevOps: According to Career Karma, DevOps is a combination of two teams—the development team and the operations team. This means having the ability to combine both areas to create products or formulate solutions more efficiently and quicker.


2) Soft skills

a) Leadership: A solutions architect has to lead a development team to follow a specific vision for the software solution. This is why this career path demands individuals with good leadership abilities.

b) Oral and written communication: Solutions architects need to give presentations about the solutions that they have designed. In order to explain well, relay their vision, and summarize the entire aspects of the solution, they need to have great communication skills.

c) Result-oriented: As the name suggests, a solutions architect must be able to deliver results. Their main job is to develop solutions for specific business problems, and failure to do so could result in poor business performance.

d) Adaptability: Solutions architects, as any other profession in the tech industry, must be able to adapt to changes. New technologies are constantly being developed. Therefore the ability to adapt to these changes is a skill that is highly sought after in the industry. Being able to learn fast will also be a plus.

e) Analytical thinking: This skill is necessary for almost all computer science and engineering careers. Analytical thinking allows a person to identify a problem, analyze the information, and work on effective solutions quickly. This is a crucial skill to have, especially for solutions architects.

f) Interpersonal: As mentioned before, solutions architects are the connection between the development team and the enterprise. This means being a good team player and being able to interact effectively across the company. Having good interpersonal skills will allow you to have good work relationships with everyone in the business. 

g) Problem-Solving: This skill goes hand-in-hand with analytical thinking. As an employee whose main task is to provide solutions, you need to be good and creative when tackling business issues. Don’t be afraid to think out of the box when approaching a problem.
