Enterprise architect role

September 28 2021 - Among all the craziness last year, your company went under and you lost your job. A report in April showed about†9.2 million†jobless Americans in the same situation as you!

What Does an Enterprise Architect Role Entail?

What even is an IT enterprise architect? This is a very complex role that integrates business needs and IT skills.

A successful enterprise architect possesses a high level of analytical problem-solving skills and well-developed time management and communication skills. If you're good at working with business software, this is the position for you!

What Is the Average Pay?

Like any career, the pay will range depending on your experience, the size of the company, where you live, etc. But, the average in the United States is a salary of about $130,000. On the low end, you're looking at about $90,000 and the high end gets as high as $185,000!
