Traditional architecture has always sat in an Ivory IT tower, looking at the fundamentals of ‘how do you deliver good IT’, focusing on patterns and design, and delivering this to the technology function to execute. Used to working in a documentation and process led model, architects plans were often seen as non-practical in use, and work would have been done to ensure these aligned with the business strategy.
