IT Strategy and Architecture 

The era of just getting by with cumbersome, inflexible enterprise architectures is over. 

Technology is advancing at a rapid pace. According to 2016 research by Gartner, 70% of IT executives identify a need to more closely align technology investments with business goals. It is critical that architectures are developed and implemented with business value and flexibility in mind. 

Adapt legacy systems or explore new approaches like bi-modal or tri-modal IT - just to name a few. Move forward with confidence using value streams, patterns and lifecycles that make up enterprise architectures. When these are coupled with agile-like methods of architecture design and implementation, you can ensure alignment with your business needs minimizing the risks to time and investment.
