The IT industry is important in Hong Kong. Every company needs IT support to survive in this rapidly changing society. Therefore, it is necessary for all enterprises to establish a complete IT framework to lift the level of front line businesses and supporting operation.
Take a large U.S. greeting card maker and retailer as an example. The company earlier stopped using its own built-in software and marketing system and transferred its core retail business to the cloud platform to integrate its sales and customers information through an integrated system. In addition, in order to manage the long queue, a chain restaurant’s branches in Asia have gradually adopted Fujitsu’s queuing system that allows customers to enter the number of people and get a number for their reservation. Hence, the staff can focus on serving the customers in the restaurant. A sushi chain restaurant also introduced a similar system to allow customers to make reservation on its mobile App.
IT architects are the technicians who design, develop and manage an IT architecture. Their duties are not restricted to specific technical problems. They also need to focus on aspects including business process, IT operation mode and continuing IT services. If a common IT engineer needs to focus on the software or hardware in front of him/her, then an IT architect is required to have a broad vision to create higher business value for the companies. The future is what they care about.
Therefore, an IT architect is not only a developer of a system, but also the leader who designs strategies and coordinates the team. Their position is irreplaceable.Interested in this industry?
