Job Description

  • Under broad direction, focus on one or more major systems, technology stacks, or products specific either to a Product Service Line or Major Corporate Function.
  • Also focus on architecture that crosses multiple projects while supporting Solution Architects on individual solutions.
  • Execute analysis and design tasks required to develop the Enterprise Architecture (EA) discipline and to ensure that it is leveraged.

  • Ensure that solution delivery life cycle efforts leverage all aspects of enterprise architecture (EA).
  • Consult with solution development projects to harmonize systems and/or infrastructure with the EA.

  • Guide solution decisions for the enterprise by analyzing technology and business trends and strategy.
  • Define principles and models to guide solution decisions for the enterprise.
  • Define key solution portfolios and ensure they are managed either by heading that activity directly or by establishing and then supporting asset-centric portfolio management disciplines (for such solution portfolios as application, service- oriented architecture [SOA] service or shared infrastructure).
  • Develop and execute road maps describing the evolution of assigned enterprise solution portfolios from current state to future state.
  • Understand and advocate the principles of business and IT strategies, as well as of EA development and service delivery.
