Sometimes it seems that architects and analysts are two different worlds. And it's not about the title of the job or role, but about how we think what is important and what is secondary. But architects and analysts think very differently, doing the same thing - designing systems. They think differently even when both of these roles are combined in one person. Let's look at what is the difference and how to achieve synergy, complementing each other. What the architect expects from the analyst, what typical mistakes should be avoided.
