In the recent OTN ArchBeat Podcast series DevOps, Cloud, and Role Creep, Oracle ACE Directors Ron Batra, Basheer Khan, and Cary Millsap discuss how trends that are reshaping enterprise IT are also reshaping "traditional" IT roles.
But if you think those changes are limited to developers, sysadmins, and architects, guess again. In Why the Cloud is causing a Split in the Role of the CIO Capgemini's Ron Tolido points out that even C-level roles are not immune to the forces that are reshaping enterprise IT:
As digital transformation starts to become a top priority for businesses, the role of the CIO will continue to split as they are forced to choose between digital transformation on one hand and IT infrastructure, applications and Cloud management on the other. In the quickly evolving world of Cloud solutions, the CIO must decide what type of CIO they want to be.
IT is always growing and changing. New technologies and trends are born, and some survive the Darwinian maturation and adoption process to become part of the fabric of IT. In other words, those technologies and trends grow up. As that happens—and believe me, it will never stop happening—every person in every role in IT faces an important question: What do you want to be when IT grows up?

A recent TechTarget article features an interview with Business Architecture expert William Ulrich (Take a business-driven approach to application modernization ). In that article Ulrich offers this advice:
"Moving from one technical architecture might be perfectly viable on a project by project basis, but when you're looking at the big picture and you want to really understand how to drive business value so that the business is pushing money into IT instead of IT pulling money back, you have to understand the business architecture. When we do that we're going to really be able to start bringing value to the table."
In many respects that big picture view is what software architecture is all about. As an architect, your technical skills must be top-notch. But if you don't apply that technical knowledge within the larger context of moving the business forward, what are you accomplishing?
If you're interested in more insight from William Ulrich, you can listen to the ArchBeat Podcast interview he did last year, in which he and co-author Neal McWhorter talked about their book, Business Architecture: The Art and Practice of Business Transformation.
