Understand the top-level concerns and issues addressable by the e-Business architecture process.
For each perspective, a variety of issues and concerns must be addressed. Architecture provides the means to address the concerns and issues associated with e-Business.

That potential is affected by performance and scalability and presents a deliberate balance of investment in the face of loss vs. risk of failure to perform.

The framework presented in this course will enable you to understand the factors that influence answers to these questions as you propose and develop solutions for your clients.
