The complexity of modern IT landscapes forces organizations to implement changes and innovations in a well-defined and structured way, applying architecture. But that’s easier said than done, because how do you actually bring IT architecture into practice? What are the tasks of an IT architect? What methods and tools are available to an IT architect? What products does an IT architect deliver? And how do you make sure that these products are effective and offer added value to an organization? In short, what does it mean to be a full IT architect?

This book is a practical guide for today’s digital architect and offers inspiration for a fuller understanding of the subject. The “what”, the “why” and the “how” are discussed extensively both in terms of the design, as well as in the creation of architecture products and the successful establishment of the architecture function in the organization.

This book is also of interest to other disciplines who want to understand more about how architecture works. By weaving personal practice stories throughout the book, the author presents a true “living” picture of the role of IT architecture.
