Rolf Siegers is an Engineering Fellow and leads Raytheon’s company-wide effort for Architecture Institutionalization and Sustainment. The Institutionalization and Sustainment initiatives span architecture process and its deployment, tools, cost estimation, training, certification, reference architecture evolution, and collaborations with government, industry, and academia. Rolf sits on Raytheon’s corporate Architecture Review Board, providing governance of the Raytheon Enterprise Architecture Process (REAP), the Raytheon Certified Architect Program (RCAP), and Raytheon’s reference architectures.
Rolf joined Raytheon in 1984, starting as a software engineer for proprietary government programs. His architecture-related program experience includes leading several multi-company, multi-disciplinary architecture teams for large-scale, software-intensive national and international systems since 1997. He is a certified TOGAF-8 Architect [The Open Group], Architecture Tradeoff Analysis Method (ATAMÒ) Evaluator [Software Engineering Institute], and Software Architecture Professional [Software Engineering Institute]. He has published papers on the synergies between a variety of architecture frameworks and has presented at conferences by the U.S. Department of Defense, Integrated Defense Architectures, Object Management Group (OMG), The Open Group, Software Engineering Institute, and the International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE).
Rolf holds bachelor degrees in Computer Science and Mathematics from Huntingdon College and is a member of IEEE and INCOSE. He resides in Dallas, Texas with his wife and three children.
