IT departments and architects are increasingly called on to drive real business value. Frequently architects work hard on delivering the design of a solution, details of an infrastructure, usage of information, and goals and capabilities of an enterprise. During this process, they use frameworks, appropriate tools, and patterns. However, the majority of software, solution, and enterprise architects are constantly challenged in industry to prove the value of architecture to business.

In this presentation, we review how architects can achieve value through both design decisions and strategic involvement. We will discuss the value contribution categories, or roles that architects can play, to make architecture and architects successful. I will focus on sharing techniques and lessons learned from being part of and managing large teams of architects. Ultimately these techniques will enable immediate and long-term impact as we wear the hats of Evangelist, Collaborator, Counselor, and Subject-Matter Expert.
