Enterprise Architecture

Enterprise Architecture

The major challenge facing business today is the need to align business strategy with its operational processes and in turn with its human and IT resources.

Enterprise Architecture enables business to define business strategies – the roadmap to financial success, design operational processes to support these strategies and support these processes with human and IT resources.  Relationships are defined to create relationships and dependencies between these objects.

Enterprise Architecture is designed to ensure alignment between the business and IT strategies, operating model, guiding principles, and the software development projects and service delivery.

By taking a global, enterprise-wide, perspective across all the business services, business processes, information, applications and technology, Enterprise Architecture ensures the enterprise goals and objectives are addressed across all the application development projects and their deployment into production.

Advantages of having an enterprise architecture include improved decision making, improved adaptability to changing demands or market conditions, elimination of inefficient and redundant processes, optimization of the use of organizational assets, and minimization of employee turnover.
