  • Analyze the technology industry, competitors and market trends, and determine their potential impact on the enterprise.
  • Define the principles, guidelines, standards and solution patterns to ensure solution decisions are aligned with the enterprise's future-state architecture vision.

  • Facilitate the evaluation and selection of software product standards and services, as well as the design of standard and custom software configurations.
  • Consult with application and infrastructure development projects to fit systems or infrastructure to architecture, and identify when it is necessary to modify projects to accommodate the solutions architecture.
  • Identify the organizational impact (i.e. on skills, processes, structures or culture) and financial impact of the solutions architecture.
  • Document all solution architecture design and analysis work as artifacts.
  • Work closely with the program management office (PMO) or project management office to ensure the execution of plans corresponds with what is being promised.
