Role of 'Information Architect' in an Enterprise

[Jobs and Career for Information Architect]
[Jobs and Career for Information Architect]
Gartner defines "enterprise information architecture" as that part of the enterprise architecture process that describes — through a set of requirements, principles and models — the current state, future state, and guidance necessary to flexibly share and exchange information assets to achieve effective enterprise change. Also called EIA - Enterprise information Architect.

The transition from information that is isolated within applications to a flexible, comprehensive enterprise information architecture will require changes in technology, process, organizational structure and orientation.
In particular, EA practitioners comfortable with technical architecture must now devote time to understanding this emerging discipline. 

Gartner projects that, EA teams will be forced by the business to spend as much time on information
architecture as they currently spend on technical architecture. Changes will also impact a range of disciplines across the organization and will require coordination to drive efficiencies and achieve objectives.

Roles that will participate in the organization's desire to maximize the value and effectiveness of
information assets include:
  1. Architects (including solution architects)
  2. Application designers
  3. Data modelers
  4. Database administrators
  5. Business intelligence specialists
  6. Master data management specialists
  7. Data quality specialists
  8. Data integration specialists
  9. Metadata management specialists
  10. Business analysts
  11. Content management specialists
  12. Professionals in security, compliance, privacy and related disciplines
Some of these roles will be done concurrently, depending on the size of the teams, the rules of
engagement (that is, "who does what at which point in the activity cycle"), the depth of domain
knowledge, and resource availability. Understanding the different roles impacted by EIA is a
critical first step.

The role of enterprise architects is to act as facilitator, planner, change agent, champion and coach during these activities (but never dictator). Their job is to advocate the adoption and assurance of all enterprise architecture deliverables. Enterprise architects should be well equipped  to handle this challenge, because of their strong relationships with the business and their strategic planning skills. However, some will need to retool their skills.

Those who step in, and step up, to develop an EIA will help their organizations deliver new enterprise capabilities

Topologies in Apache Storm the concept you need to know

There are two main reasons why Apache Storm is so popular. The number one is it can connect to many sources. The number two is scalable. The other advantage is fault tolerant. That means, guaranteed data processing.
The map-reduce jobs process the data analytics in Hadoop. The topology in Storm is the real data processor. The co-ordination between Nimbus and Supervisor carried by Zookeeper What are topologiesThe jobs in Hadoop are similar to topology. The jobs run as per schedule defined.In Storm, the topology runs forever.A topology consists of many worker processes spread across many machines. A topology is a pre-defined design to get end product using your data.A topology comprises of 2 parts. These are Spout and bolts.The Spout is a funnel for topology Two nodes in StormMaster Node: similar to Hadoop job tracker. It runs on a daemon called Nimbus.Worker Node: It runs on a daemon called Supervisor. The Supervisor listens to the work assigned to each machine.Master NodeNimbus is re…

Three popular RPA tools functional differences

Robotic process automation is growing area and many IT developers across the board started up-skill in this popular area. I have written this post for the benefit of Software developers who are interested in RPA also called Robotic Process Automation.

In my previous post, I have described that total 12 tools are available in the market. Out of those 3 tools are most popular. Those are Automation anywhere, BluePrism and Uipath. Many programmers asked what are the differences between these tools. I have given differences of all these three RPA tools.

BluePrismBlue Prism has taken a simple concept, replicating user activity on the desktop, and made it enterprise strength. The technology is scalable, secure, resilient, and flexible and is supported by a comprehensive methodology, operational framework and provided as packaged software.The technology is developed and deployed within a “corridor of IT governance” and has sophisticated error handling and process modelling capabilities to ensu…
