Needs of an Enterprise Architect
The role of the Enterprise Architecture is to help the organization better understand their complex IT landscape which includes systems, processes, services, relationships, information and strategy with the intent of supporting the planning and coordinating of business change and innovation.
These objectives are often constrained by the complexity of the environment, the volume of information contained within these environments and the rapid rate of technology & business change.
To address the needs of Enterprise Architecture there is a need to move away from existing agricultural methods including static (and invariably outdated) architecture diagrams, spreadsheets, email and office documents; moving to a platform that provides dynamic and real-time information that crosses all your IT environments (production & non-production), data and operations.
The enov8 platform is, conceptually, an “integration & orchestration umbrella” that sits holistically across your IT landscape i.e. Applications, Data, Infrastructure, People, Process, Products, Financials & Relationships and brings the real-time intelligence together in such a way that it simplifies your analysis, decision making and ultimately supports architectural execution, that is the orchestration of the solution itself.
