An Overview of Application Architecture within an Enterprise

Application Architecture is the process of defining the framework of an organization’s application solutions against business requirements. It involves the definition of the application landscape, aiming to optimize this landscape against the ideal blueprint. The Open Group’s architectural framework, TOGAF, defines the objective of application architecture as “defining the major kinds of application systems necessary to process the data and support the business”.

In the face of today’s unprecedented pace of technological change, the analysts at Gartner predict that more than 75% of multi-enterprise processes will be implemented as composite applications by 2018.

As a discipline, application architecture lays the foundation for agility, scalability and reliability in your application landscape. The keyword here is agility. Traditional businesses are being reinvented overnight. With successful application architecture, your organization can respond quickly and effectively to sudden changes in the landscape.
