Abstract

The time for IT to be a provider of big systems is over. Businesses know how to solve their problems, and IT should get out of the way and let them. The role of IT should be to provide software engineering competence and infrastructure to enable a business to create solutions for its challenges. Enterprise architecture and software architecture can be instruments that a business uses to understand where the solutions fit in the larger landscape and how best to utilize existing components. How can we provide this essential tool to the business in order to let it solve its own problems while we ensure a consistent software architecture and system landscape?
