3 February 9, 2015 Page 1 General Characteristics Individuals in the ure role provide overall direction, guidance, definition and facilitation for the development of current and future architecture required to meet Institute needs, goals, and strategic direction. Responsibilities include the development of strategies aligning IT to the Institute, advocacy and support of current IT strategies, identification and analysis of the Institute s drivers to derive useful context, and analysis of the current IT ecosystem to detect critical deficiencies, and recommend solutions for improvement. s interface across all departments, acting as visionaries to proactively assist in defining the direction for future projects. They conceive strategies, solutions, build consensus, and sell/execute solutions. They are involved in all aspects of the project life cycle, from the initial kickoff through the requirements analysis, design, and implementation. Additional responsibilities may include establishing overall architectural viewpoints and oversight of organization standards and policies. s identify major system interfaces, business capabilities needs, and existing architecture weaknesses and opportunities for systems. Serving in this role requires an individual to be a self-starter, working both independently and as a team member. Strong communication skills in interfacing with Institute partners and the IT community are required. s are also responsible for educating and guiding others on architectural standards, principles, methodology and trends. They must have significant business knowledge and have expertise within one or more areas of information, solution, and/or technical architecture in which they concentrate. s are expected to mentor and coach less experienced staff and provide knowledge transfer across the organization. There are several different types of architects related to IT. This role describes the responsibilities common to all architects. It also describes specialized roles and responsibilities associated with the following architectural areas: Enterprise (EA) The Enterprise provides guidance, road maps, principles, standards and best practices. They must be focused on enabling business and IT leaders to make investment decisions that balance and prioritize current operational demands, disruptions, and opportunities with the longer-term strategic vision of the organization. Information ure Information s are responsible for improving business performance or cost optimization through enterprise information solutions, such as master data management, metadata management, business intelligence, content management, data interoperability, analytics, data integration and related information infrastructure components. They are principally focused on the highlevel information repositories and information flows that will meet the requirements of the business strategies and business processes. Information s provide guidance to BI Analyst and Engineers. Business ure Business s are responsible for engaging business partners in analyzing, strategizing, and prioritizing business processes and for ensuring that projects realize their intended business benefits. They identify customer business/process issues and translate them into business requirements. Business s champion innovative changes and/or technology-enabled solutions. Security ure Security s develop and implement enterprise information security architectures and solutions. They serve as a security experts in application development, database design and platform efforts, helping project teams comply with enterprise and IT security policies, industry regulations, and best practices.

4 February 9, 2015 Page 2 Solutions ure Solution s partner with business analysts and engineers to define the technical requirements, principles and models that generally guide all solution decisions for the ecosystem. They are responsible for analyzing and translating business, information and technical requirements into an architectural blueprint that outlines solutions that integrate across applications, systems and platforms to achieve business objectives. Solution s look across applications, and consider infrastructure, to develop roadmaps that outline how solutions will be structured in the future. Application ure Application s identify needed changes to the portfolio of applications across the ecosystem. They develop and administer application-specific standards such as user interface design, globalization, Web services, portal application programming interfaces, XML, and content. They provide design recommendations based on long-term development organization strategy and develop enterprise level application and custom integration solutions including major enhancements and interfaces, functions and features. Infrastructure ure Infrastructure s develop future technology and architectural advancements to support architectural strategy, technology migration, integration and evolution of the technical infrastructure. They focus on the development of infrastructure technology principles, standards, and patterns that can be highly leveraged across multiple solutions. The Infrastructure provides the bridge between the deeply technical domain architects and the solution architects to ensure the technology infrastructure meets the goals of scalability and complexity reduction and supports the roadmaps defined by solution architects.
