Businesses and even federal agencies go into enterprise architecture in order to optimize IT functionality and to optimize business overall operations as well. Evidently, IT systems and of course, the application used in these systems are highly embedded one’s enterprise architecture. One of the aims, too, is to align business goals and the IT systems so that such goals are achieved.
In designing and aligning IT systems and applications, practitioners of enterprise architecture would have to employ not only the use of framework models but of design and software tools as well. Visual Studio .NET Enterprise Architect is a good software for such purpose. It supports designers by providing them with the right tools and applications, and even so far as illustrating best practices in the field. Equipped with these, designers or architects are then able to outline precisely the features and goals for designing distributed applications. With the architecture clearly defined architecture as a basis, the architect and the developers are then able to create applications that are dependable and high performing. This is done, of course, with the use of Microsoft .NET technologies.
This software actually enables enterprise architects to do their job. With the tools and best practice applications it provides, targets are easily and clearly defined. From that, designers are able to design goal oriented applications and they are able to ensure that such applications function in alignment with the company target state. This software also enhances other existing tools that architects and developers usually use in developing applications.
