This conference will focus on the different disciplines of IT Architecture, and the need of the industry for an accepted definition of the expected technical competencies of IT Architects in the different fields involved in professional architecture engagements.

If the scope of an Enterprise Architect's responsibilities is enterprise-wide, just how much depth of technical knowledge does that imply for a particular area such as SOA, networking, or application integration?

The Open Group has led the way in the IT industry in launching a program to certify the skills and experience levels of IT Architects - The Open Group IT Architect Certification program. The IT Architect is someone who defines - 'architects' - solutions to client business problems through the reasoned application of information technology. Those solutions are manifested as architectures, and may involve the application and integration of a broad variety of products, technologies and services, various systems and applications architectures, and diverse hardware and software components.
