Why follow this course?

So much has changed in the past two or three years that it's hard to know what business, technology, and architecture should look like anymore. The environment is now part of a larger business ecosystem. Scale, speed, and scope are greatly expanded. 

Business architecture is different. Information and data architecture are different. Application architecture is different. Technology architecture is different. Security architecture is different. Application development and DevOps are different. And how they all fit together is different, too. 

This course covers all these architectures' fundamental concepts to enable businesses to compete and sustain themselves in the new digital economy.
