Imagine needing to log onto multiple systems researching a project because you didn’t know the information had already been compiled by someone in another department. Or, imagine having to log onto several, unconnected systems to track a project from initiation to completion and billing. These situations exist in organizations that have various departments operating as independent silos.

This creates the need for enterprise architects, professionals who will understand:The goal of enterprise architecture is to connect isolated units to facilitate sharing of information, increase overall efficiency and response time.

Additionally, certification brings value and recognition to professionals as well as to the organizations that employ them.
