The Enterprise Architect acts as a bridge between the needs of the customer to the solutions and services that Oracle may bring to bear to deliver value to the customer. The Enterprise Architect provides leadership within Oracle across the various lines of business to ensure that Oracles value offerings to the customer are feasible, consistent, effective and aligned to the customer need.There are two classes of customer engagements that the Enterprise Architect typically supports. The first is an opportunity-driven large-scale solution. These may vary from a complex pure technology solution such as Enterprise DBaaS or an end-to-end ERP and SCM solution; the common thread being the complexity and cross-pillar, cross-LoB and cloud hybrid nature of the solution. In these complex solutions, the Enterprise Architect will work with other LoB architects to build a complete high-level architecture that covers the static architecture, the operational architecture and the migration architecture necessary to deliver success to Oracle and the customer. A good term for this type of work might be Enterprise Solution Architecture.The second class of engagement is a longer, more permanent relationship at the account level. The Enterprise Architect will work closely with the customer at very senior level within the customers organization - typically, CIO, Chief Architect or CTO - to build a strong strategic architecture relationship with the customer. This is usually realized through regular and frequent meetings with the customer - for example within the construct of an architecture board. Whilst the focus will likely be on the customers use of Oracle products and services, the aspiration is to build sufficient trust with the customer such that Oracles products are considered at the earliest point of the customers decision making.The Enterprise Architect is also a leadership position within Oracle and the architects key role here is to bring together the disparate threads of people, services and products into a cohesive offering. A large-scale Oracle solution will bring together Sales, Product Management, Consulting, Cloud Operations, Advanced Customer Services and perhaps a Global Business Unit - and it is the Enterprise Architect who sits at the center of these organizations, ensuring that, from a broad architecture perspective that the solution offers to the customer is fit for purpose.As the senior role in the architecture community, the Enterprise Architect must also lead beyond a single opportunity. The Enterprise Architect will lead on architecture re-use through the capture of these large-scale architecture designs and their evangelizing within Oracle. This includes not only direct re-use in future architecture opportunities, but also the use of those solutions in business development, services proposition development, future product direction.RESPONSIBILITIES* Support account teams in large-scale opportunities* Support Inspire activities in accounts to generate customer interest* Work in collaboration with local account team and a broad range of other Oracle LoBs* Exercise creativity, independent judgment and business acumen in selecting methods and techniques to design non-routine and very complex business solutions utilizing Oracle products and technology to meet customer needs.* Interact with all roles at customer including CIO, CTO, IT Architects, technical staff and business representatives.* Conduct repeatable strategy, architecture, roadmap and planning workshops.* Provide assessment of current state architecture and recommendation of future state architecture.* Provide roadmap and migration methodology and identify quick wins.* Define, develop and evolve architecture standards and principles.* Provide non-routine and complex statements of work, work breakdown structure and/or level of effort and staff plans.* Responsible for transitioning deal knowledge to implementation team.* Leads the architecture and solution design aspects of engagement(s) ensuring high quality and integrated cross-domain business solutions.* Identify and evangelize key business and technology benefits of adoption.* Advise on organizational impact of solutions.* Play an active role as part of the architecture community.* Remain fully aware of relevant architectural programs and assets from Oracle worldwide.* Remain aware of all relevant product developments and references both at Oracle and at competitors.EXPERTISE* Strategic and outcome-based mind-set* Enterprise Architecture Methods* Broad cross-functional, cross-domain IT knowledge* Modern application architectures* Modern development approaches* Modern IT architectures* Facilitation and Problem Solving* Industry Knowledge* Modern technology architecturesQUALIFICATIONS* University Degree in Computer Sciences or similar IT related fields* Extensive background in Enterprise Architect and IT architecture including Digital Transformation related topics* Proven technical expertise in Oracle core technologies (Database and WebLogic)in addition to PaaS and IaaS solutions.* Holistic knowledge of cloud solutions and respective use-cases* Significant C-level presentation and consultative selling experienceTECHNICAL SKILLS REQUIRED* Wide background including architecture, implementation and delivery of largescale hardware and software systems in real-world situations.* 10 years experience relevant to this position.* Wide knowledge of IT market and trends.* Knowledge of full Oracle stack (ideally).* Specific knowledge of Oracle and competitor hardware solutions is an advantage.* Specific knowledge of Oracle database and middleware technology is an advantage.* Specific knowledge of Oracle applications is an advantage.* Specific knowledge of Oracle industry solutions is an advantage.* Knowledge of architecture frameworks like e.g. TOGAF, IAF, DYA and Oracles OADP/OEAF.* Detailed knowledge of architectural approaches including consolidation, cloud computing, virtualization, disaster recovery, application rationalization, information management, big data, java applications, Oracle and non-Oracle applications.* Ability to craft and articulate strategic solutions.
