You will use this knowledge to ensure alignment of the business and IT organizations. You will also link IT strategy to the mission, vision, values, goals, objectives, strategies, and processes of the Department of Human Services (DHS) and the Oregon Health Authority (OHA), documenting the multiple architectural models or views showing how the current and future needs of an organization will be met in an effective, efficient, sustainable, agile, and adaptable manner.
Additionally, you will operate across organizational and computing "silos" to drive towards common and effective approaches and expose information assets and processes across the enterprise. Your goal will be to provide context for architectural decisions, ensuring the designs for IT solutions align with the business goals and objectives of OHA and DHS, as well as with the IT resources, processes and tools used to provide those solutions. You will lead the use of best practices for the design of domain architectures in support of the strategic directions of DHS, OHA, and the Office of Information Services (OIS). You will also serve as the research leader for major agency technology studies and initiatives.
