Job description

Skills and experience producing architectures: IT architects create architectures, the definition of the structures of an IT solution to a business problem. To accomplish this, they must be proficient at the techniques that go into the formulation of architectures.

Disciplined, method-driven execution: The IT architect uses formal methods to guide and drive the development of solutions, the management of their work and the production of their deliverables.

IT architects require broad skills and experience with many application (functional) and infrastructure products, technologies, and services. While often relying on specialists for the construction, implementation and operation aspects in many of these areas, the IT architect must have enough skills and experience across them to be able to successfully architect appropriate solutions of heterogeneous components. Effective IT architects also possess some more detailed skills in one or more technical focus areas.

Full life cycle experience: In the development of architectures, the IT architect is often focused on the front end of the solution lifecycle. Full life-cycle experience enables the IT architect to produce solution designs that are truly viable and that can be successfully constructed, implemented, operated and managed. An effective IT architect should have some full life-cycle experience.

Industry segment experience: In addition to understanding client business processes, the IT architect should possess knowledge of one or more client industry segments, including an understanding of industry-specific business requirements, competitive environment and directions, and the effective application of information technology in that industry.

Leadership: The effective IT architect is a leader, providing knowledge, technical and team leadership skills in their work, to their clients and for their teams.

Strong communication and professional skills: The IT architect must have a high level of communication, consulting and client relationship skills. The IT architect must be able to clearly communicate complex technical and business concepts, both to clients and to team members, and to negotiate change. Problem solving is a principal role of the IT architect, and he or she must be capable of effectively identifying and framing problems, leading the collection of elements of information and integrating this information to produce timely and thoughtful decisions.
