When technology infrastructure lines up with business projects like musicians in a marching band, you know you have a good enterprise architect on staff. Enterprise architecture focuses on four crucial C’s: connection, collaboration, communication, and customers. Imagine needing to manually log onto five different systems to create and track an order, or spending 20 hours to research a project because you didn’t know that the information already existed in another department.
