Software architecture has become an important aspect on systems development; however, despite the fact that there are several architectures that are already popular in the computer world, they do not seem to fully meet the demands of the developer due to the fact that system requirements are becoming increasingly stringent. This paper aims to carry out a systematic mapping study that allows publicizing the different architectures used in research accomplished in Latin America. For the study, numerous articles searches were executed in different bibliographic databases from acknowledged scientific journals, where several articles were obtained and through filters a total of 10 articles were obtained with which this project was worked on. Applying the systematic mapping process, a series of analyses were carried out on the selected scientific articles that allowed a detailed study of the investigations, which led to a varied collection of data that determined the focus of the studies when applying architecture to their systems. The final results of this work show that the scientific articles analyzed are focused on proposing new architectures based on existing ones.
