Solutions architects provide the necessary leadership, analysis and design tasks related to the development of an enterprise' s solutions architecture.

Solutions architecture is sometimes used interchangeably with applications and infrastructure architecture. However, both of the aforementioned typically fall under the purview of the solutions architect.
Application architecture is a subset of solutions architecture. It' s the discipline that guides application design and defines application architecture paradigms, such as service-oriented architecture (SOA), principles that influence design decisions and patterns that provide proven design solutions.

Solutions architects leverage and use technology solutions to enable the organization' s future-state business capabilities that, in turn, drive the organization' s targeted outcomes. They facilitate and orchestrate the delivery of targeted business outcomes.

: Provide consulting support to application technical leads within projects to ensure the project is aligned with the overall domain and application architecture.
: Monitor the current-state solution portfolio to identify deficiencies through aging of the technologies used by the application, or misalignment with business requirements.
: Understand technology trends and the practical application of existing, new, and emerging technologies to enable new and evolving business and operating models.
: Understand, advocate and augment the principles of information technology strategies.
: Analyze the business-IT environment (run, grow and transform the business) to detect critical deficiencies, and recommend solutions for improvement (systems of record, differentiation and innovation).
: Analyze the technology industry, competitors and market trends, and determine their potential impact on the enterprise.
: Define the principles, guidelines, standards and solution patterns to ensure solution decisions are aligned with the enterprise' s future-state architecture vision.
: Design and direct the governance activities associated with ensuring solutions architecture assurance and compliance.
: Develop a roadmap for the evolution of the enterprise application portfolio from future to current state (as defined by the solutions architecture).
: Facilitate the evaluation and selection of software product standards and services, as well as the design of standard and custom software configurations.
: Consult with application and infrastructure development projects to fit systems or infrastructure to architecture, and identify when it is necessary to modify projects to accommodate the solutions architecture.
: Identify the organizational impact (for example, on skills, processes, structures or culture) and financial impact of the solutions architecture.
: Document all solution architecture design and analysis work.
: Work closely with the program management office (PMO) or project management office to ensure the execution of plans corresponds with what is being promised.

Credentials and Experience
: Bachelor' s degree in computer science, system analysis or a related study, or equivalent experience
: Minimum of five years of experience in at least two IT solution development disciplines, including technical architecture, network management, application development, middleware, database management or operations
: Exposure to multiple, diverse technologies and processing environments

: Excellent written and verbal communication skills
: Excellent planning and organizational skills
: Knowledge of all components of an enterprise technical architecture
: Knowledge of financial models and budgeting

: Ability to communicate, influence and persuade peers
: Ability to understand the long-term (" big picture") and short-term perspectives of situations
: Ability to translate future-state business capabilities and requirements into solution architecture requirements
: Ability to propose and estimate the financial impact of solution architecture alternatives
: Ability to apply multiple technical solutions to business problems
: Ability to quickly comprehend the functions and capabilities of new technologies
: Proven ability to work well with others

Characteristics
