IT ARCHITECTURE AND INFRASTRUCTURE

IT Architecture and Infrastructure Management Services tend to be complex and encompass the design of overall information delivery including the hardware, software and external services which make up a functional system.

There are a series of principles, guidelines or rules used by businesses to direct the process of acquiring, building, modifying and interfacing IT resources throughout a business.

An Entrepreneur could benefit from investing in the services of an IT Architect regardless of the size of the business size

Once an assessment of the business has been carried out, appropriate recommendations will be presented to suit the business needs of the company.

TYPES OF IT ARCHITECTURE

architecture 1
Enterprise

An Enterprise Architect is less computer science oriented; their focus is to ensure that IT works for a business. They often have a technical background but do not fall in the same category as IT support. Instead, these employees will work at making an IT system fit your business goals.

Software

A Software Architect is exceptionally technical and is less concerned with the day-to-day running of a business. They code and assist with cost-effective software solutions. They act as a relay between the software development team and the business, acting as leaders to ensure business needs are met.

Infrastructure

An Infrastructure Architect ensures that a business runs smoothly. They create solutions to handle current system demands, manage the backend and business-related mobile apps, while also handling data security for sensitive data.
