Enterprise architecture seems to be the way for many businesses in the recent years. Since IT has been widely used in a company’s systems, processes and decision making, solutions and applications has been in demand. More and more businesses want to do their business in the most optimal way by acquiring the best systems they can afford. They have put company goals and IT side by side in order to achieve overall optimal performance.
Several companies offer their solutions, applications and even services for implementing enterprise architecture. For its part Sun Microsystems has been involved in this arena. While it is known for providing servers, workstations and computer components, it is equally as active and as popular in providing software applications and even IT services.
In the field of enterprise architecture, Sun Microsystems has been employed by many businesses to help them in their own enterprise architecture endeavors. Sun enterprise architects have been contracted and have been put to work in their systems so as to make sure that they are getting what they need. Since these companies already have Sun technology running in their systems anyway, they prefer to run enterprise architecture together with a Sun enterprise architect as well; the logic being that who would better know how to run and perhaps transform their system than the makers of the technology themselves. Enterprise architects from Sun work with the company s enterprise architecture team in order to be able to define the company enterprise architecture. This way, the company is able to have an outside opinion they can trust and they can get corroboration from experts in the field.
