• Act as a technical consultant to development teams and partner with business and IT teams to define long-term architectural vision, business and technical architecture roadmaps, and enterprise guidelines and standards
• Assist the business in technology requests and vendor evaluations; perform buy vs. build analysis and promote the use of shared platforms and services
• Keep abreast of technology innovation, industry standards, architectural trends, and major technical vendors and provide thought leadership in the area of software architecture
