Commercial Considerations and Enterprise Architecture

This post is dedicated to my colleagues in the Government ICT Supply Management Office within the New Zealand Government.  I’ve learnt a lot from working with them over the last few months.

When working in the ICT architecture of an organisation – whether enterprise architecture or solution architecture – your architecture will always be better for a well-informed engagement with the commercial side of ICT. In this post I will describe why it is important to understand the commercial aspects of ICT in order to deliver more successful ICT solutions, and how working with your commercial team can assist in this success.
