Course Description

This course emphasizes the role of enterprise architecture (ea) in aligning business and information technology (it) by linking the mission, strategy, and processes of an organization to its it strategy. The course helps students understand the enterprise from various views, including enterprise architecture (ea), systems, and information technology (it) views. The ea view introduces students to various levels of architecture (e.g., strategic, tactical, operational, etc.) and sub-architectures (e.g., business, information, application architecture, security, social, etc.). The systems view provides students with an understanding of how it and systems integrate business information and processes across functional areas and across organizational boundaries. The it view (i.e., it architecture) helps students to specify it resources (e.g., the internet and networking, client-server architecture, cloud computing, mobile computing, software as a service, social media, etc.) that can be organized to support the organization's operating model and information vision.
