The public cloud has typically been outside of the domain of enterprise architects. On the surface, it has been considered an external silo where procurement decisions have been driven by line of business executives. But not anymore. Business processes extend into the cloud. And, the cloud extends into the enterprise.
However, this state of affairs is changing rapidly as customers increasingly embrace cloud computing. Enterprise architects are called on not only to review public cloud implementations but also to understand how best to integrate new cloud offerings with existing on-premises information systems. Most companies will have a combination of assets combining public cloud SaaS, PaaS and IaaS with their existing on-premises systems. The marketing folks are calling this Hybrid IT. Enterprise architects therefore face a new set of challenges as they figure out how to integrate these systems with each other.
Today's enterprise architects face a shifting set of circumstances. In the next two years, a growing number of companies plan to move key parts of their computing workloads to public clouds to take advantage of lights-out automated software provisioning and management, rapid project implementation, elastic scalability, and subscription-based pricing models. To keep up with consumer demand, IT has become an external service broker. In some cases IT pros have been forced to support heterogeneous cloud "silos" that may have proprietary methods of security, integration, management, and governance. These trends are forcing core IT departments to formalize enterprise governance and enterprise architecture to mitigate risk.
