Enterprise Architecture (EA)
The Enterprise Architecture (EA) Group is responsible for defining the structure and operation of an organization by documenting and integrating the business processes of internal groups (HR, Finance, IT) with information technology (IT) systems and applications. In short, they are tasked with aligning company systems with actual, real-world business needs, or requirements. EA team members work with both day-to-day business users and IT application developers to perform business process analysis and improvements that can then be implemented into automated workflow management systems, business intelligence applications and other internal systems. Enterprise Architects work diligently to ensure that IT projects meet the strategic needs of the business.
