technology roadmaps using Enterprise Architecture
The role of Enterprise Architecture has never been more important as we seek to understand and manage the components and structure of business that drive the digital world.
The universe is architectured in such a way that every entity operates in a harmonized manner. Similarly, a good architecture of an enterprise has an organized structure of business and technology components that optimize the function, performance, cost and overall structure of the business roadmap leading towards its vision.
