The public cloud has typically been outside of the domain ofenterprise architects. On the surface, it has been considered an external silowhere procurement decisions have been driven by line of business executives. But not anymore. Business processes extend into thecloud. And, the cloud extends into theenterprise.

However, this state of affairs is changing rapidly ascustomers increasingly embrace cloud computing. Enterprise architects arecalled on not only to review public cloud implementations but also tounderstand how best to integrate new cloud offerings with existing on-premisesinformation systems. Most companies will have a combination of assets combiningpublic cloud SaaS, PaaS and IaaS with their existing on-premises systems. Themarketing folks are calling this Hybrid IT. Enterprise architects therefore face a new set of challenges as theyfigure out how to integrate these systems with each other.

Today’s enterprise architects face a shifting set ofcircumstances. In the next two years, a growing number of companies plan tomove key parts of their computing workloads to public clouds to take advantageof lights-out automated software provisioning and management, rapid projectimplementation, elastic scalability, and subscription-based pricing models. Tokeep up with consumer demand, IT has become an external service broker. In somecases IT pros have been forced to support heterogeneous cloud "silos"that may have proprietary methods of security, integration, management, andgovernance. These trends are forcing core IT departments to formalizeenterprise governance and enterprise architecture to mitigate risk.
