If the team architecture and the technical architecture do not fit together, problems arise. Both architectures evolve, however, often causing misalignment. How can we notice such mismatches and react in time?

In this talk, I present modern analysis techniques that mine data from different software artifacts (e.g. lightweight architecture specifications, code and trace files) and version control systems. They reveal problems in the code or design that result from communication problems in the development team.

I present the analysis techniques using examples from open source and commercial software systems. I also outline both best practices and limitations in employing such analyses that I collected over 10 years.
