Enterprise architects challenged to manage data explosion

Today’s enterprise faces dramatic change and tremendous opportunity, and the traditional role of
the enterprise architect — to ensure adequate technology governance, drive transformational initiatives,
and support critical business processes — has become even more challenging. Enterprises are
collecting and storing unprecedented amounts of data, which threatens to usurp fundamental
business processes and put key initiatives at risk.

Effective architects can take the right steps to keep the enterprise in control of key business processes and initiatives and to fully capture and deliver on the value of information to the organization and its customers. Start by creating unified information platforms that are highly agile, reliable, and scalable to make it easy to access and integrate all data sources across the enterprise.
