A known problem in large software companies is to balance the prioritization of short-term with long-term responsiveness. Specifically, architecture violations (Architecture Technical Debt) taken to deliver fast might hinder future feature development, which would hinder agility. We conducted a multiple-case embedded case study in 7 sites at 5 large companies in order to shed light on the current causes for the accumulation of Architectural Technical Debt that causes effort. We provide a taxonomy of the factors and their influence in the accumulation of debt, and we provide a qualitative model of how the debt is accumulated and recovered over time.


This paper was selected as best paper at the Euromicro SEAA conference. The study was carried out in collaboration with the Software Center. Article number 6928795.
