A study of the relationship between agile methods and software architecture surveyed 72 IBM software developers. Results suggest that the two approaches are compatible. In particular, agile developers perceived architectural principles as important and supportive to agile values, rather than contrasting or neutral to them. This positive perception of software architectural principles and practice bodes well for future efforts to integrate agile and architecture practices.
