Keeping up with all the technology innovations is always a challenge. To manage an effective IT organization, you need a way to determine the real impact that technologies have on business results, as well as the true costs: to assess, build, and operate comprehensive and integrated technology architectures that have an impact on desired business outcomes; and to cost-effectively improve availability, performance, and security.
The Technology Architecture domain focuses on all the technical aspects of providing IT services, ensuring that they're well planned, well deployed, and well managed. Covering applications, database, and network layers, the IT Architecture domain comprises logical and physical designs with special provisions to ensure that performance, availability, and scalability are adequate to meet committed service-level agreements. Key technologies include infrastructure services, n-tier architectures, local and wide area network, storage, security, management systems, continuous service strategies, and key components configurations.
The Technology Architecture domain captures the technical elements you need to understand and manage:
- Service architecture
- Logical architecture
- Applications architecture
- Database architecture
- Network architecture
- Storage architecture
- Continuous and resilient service strategies
- Security architecture
- Management systems architecture
