EarlyBirds Points Out that Chief Architects Need to Solve Complex Problems But They Can Help
EarlyBirds, the Australian company that operates the Early Birds Marketplace, a business to business (B2B) open ecosystem that enables innovators, early adopters, and subject matter experts (SMEs) to get together and push for technology advancement, has pointed out that Chief Architects are c-level executives who are in charge of solving complex problems involving the IT infrastructure of an organisation but they can help. Chief Architects have various responsibilities, such as aligning IT needs with the strategic direction of the enterprise; analysing gaps in technology architecture and converting them into opportunities; defining an organisation's processes for compliance, exceptions, communications, vitality, and change management; and more.
The Chief Architect, also known as Chief IT Architect or Enterprise Architect, is a C-Level executive, whose responsibility is to carefully find ways of centralising IT functions so that the various departments of the company would be able to work with each other seamlessly. The design of the IT infrastructure is one of the key concerns of the Chief Architect. Infrastructure design can have a significant effect on the performance of an IT organisation, and the Chief Architect has a vital role in constructing or buying the technology that will assist an enterprise to comply with its business goals. To that end, the Chief Architect has the responsibility of solving integration problems and synchronizing technology frameworks across the various business units of the organisation.
The role of every Chief Architect has to do with the added complexities of information technology and the need for a top-down approach to sharing and managing data and processes. The Chief Architect has to have vast technical knowledge regarding storage, data management, security, and network service delivery. Depending upon the organisation, the Chief Architect will need to oversee and coordinate the efforts of other technology-specific architects, including the Chief Data Architect, the Chief Mobile Architect, the Chief Security Architect, and the Chief Cloud Architect.
It is understandable that Chief Architects are C-Level executives because of the importance of their role in the organisation, especially in providing solutions for really difficult and complex problems. The Chief Architect plays the key role in solving complex issues and resolve technological disputes using informed solutions. The Chief Architect is also tasked with designing IT technology architecture in order to align with enterprise processes, procedures, standards, and targets. Chief Architects have the responsibility of choosing the technology to use, develop high performance architects within the organisation, and supervise the quality and implementation of designs. They will also serve as leaders of software technology architects in solving complex problems. They are also charged with creating software architecture policies and guidelines to manage and guide members of the department.
Meanwhile, one the primary purposes of the EarlyBirds system is to obtain insights from the problems that participants’ customers have and which they are always striving to understand and then pivoting as needed to help their customers’ businesses. Thus, it could play a vital role in a company that is adopting or the use of technology, such as enhancing the business’ IT infrastructure. In this capacity, they can help Chief Architects accomplish their tasks in meeting the business objectives of their organisation.
