Enterprise Architects serve as liaisons between ITS and other city departments.
They are responsible for working with assigned business units to plan, evaluate, and architect technology-related solutions that drive down operating expenditures, more effectively leverage existing investments to preserve public trust, and minimize duplication of technology.
Enterprise Architects possess in-depth knowledge of and lead one or more technical domains via virtual working groups of domain subject-matter experts.
The City currently has the following domains:
Applications, Business, Data, Server/Storage, End-User Platform, and Network Voice and Video Infrastructure (NVVI).
As the domain representative to IT governance, the Enterprise Architect will be influential in managing the lifecycle of major groups of technologies; facilitating the procurement of infrastructure-level technologies; understanding and implementing methodologies for design and documentation, configurations, processes, and standards to ensure that the City can be more effective and efficient in our implementation and use of technology.
