What is the role of the Enterprise Architect? The enterprise architect must map, define and standardize technology, information and business processes to facilitate the bridging of the gap between business and IT. This means that the architect must have both a macro and micro view: He must understand the business strategy and translate this into an architectural approach (macro view), but he must also be able to work with individual projects (micro view) and deliver very concrete guidance to these projects that focuses on the successful delivery of the individual project within the macro view. The enterprise architect transforms tech-speak into the language of business solutions, and he knows what technology is needed to enable business strategy.
