Part II

Defining the Role of IT Architecture


In this part . . .

Enterprise architecture is all about identifying challenges and advantages for enterprise coordination and planning endeavors, all while demonstrating value. This part takes a look at those challenges, along with a variation of the 80/20 rule that is useful for enterprise planning.

In addition, we talk about why you must know the importance of the information you’re working with in order to best determine how to organize and protect it. We also highlight any legal mandates or industry regulations, such as Sarbanes-Oxley or Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards, that apply to your organization, as well as look at managing risk and compliance in your enterprise.
