IT Solutions Architects and Cyber Security Engineering
Since the inception of Information Technology, Technology has been a strategic investment for the enterprise. Deploying Architectures that are extensible and vendor neutral, are flexible and cost effective, provide strategic advantage to the organization.
Architectures should provide a foundation in which an organization leverages information technology to increase Revenue, Reduces Expenses, thereby increasing Profit. Simple math, R – E = P. If the Enterprise Architecture and all its components doesn’t support that objective. Our business executives need to be asking the question, of why we are investing at all.
I would add that in the competitive world economy in which we live, the strategic advantages to increasing revenue and reducing expenses lies in Enhancing the Customer Experience. Continuous improvements in this area demand the continued use of emerging technologies, thus the Enterprise Architecture to support them over the business cycle must be well engineered.” ~ Michael W.
