Welcome to Enable Architect

Architects enable businesses to make technology-oriented decisions. These are communicated through visions for an architecture: one or more schematics that make up a logical and physical system. Enable Architect is here to connect these talented people together by exploring architectures and the career of IT Architects.

About Architects

The people making architecture decisions go by many titles. They are called engineers, developers, sysadmins; senior, principal, or director. They could be in organizations adopting DevOps, all in on Agile, or following the TOGAF standard. They may be specialized based on their domain expertise around networking, cloud computing, software development, or storage. No matter what style or title, they are the Architect at the heart of decisions that influence technology choices as much as they do the viability of the business.

This site, and its related communities of practice, are designed from the ground up with Architects in mind. If you design systems more than you deploy them these days, this editorial is for you. If you design the logical connections or interaction of multiple products into a cohesive solution for your organization, you’re the type of Architect we are here to connect with. If you hold onto your command-line knowledge or favorite programming language, you're also welcome here. All types of Architects, from the formative Enterprise Architect to the evolving Automation Architect, will have a place to learn, share, and grow.

What to expect as a reader

Our singular focus will be to publish stories relevant to your career as an Architect in the enterprise technology industry. We will cover architectural considerations for hybrid cloud, edge computing, delivery pipelines, and anything else where IT Architects are involved.

There will be resources for continued learning as a Network Architect, Cloud Architect, Storage Architect, and every other domain expertise. We will explore the technical nuance of complex distributed systems and talk about the evolving best practices for architecting technologies like Kubernetes and OpenStack.

We will be sure to ask experts to provide an Architect-centric introduction to technology adoption, from automation to artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI/ML).

Last but not least, we’ll explore the nonlinear career path that brings someone from Sysadmin, Engineer, or Developer into an Architect role, and where they could grow from there.

Our editorial will be a reflection of what matters to you.

What to expect as a contributor

The most powerful way to impact how this space grows will be by sharing your own experiences. We accept contributors to this editorial and offer a full portfolio of services to make that experience worthwhile to you. For those interested, we offer professional writing feedback and one-on-one coaching to elevate your message. After publication, we will share your work across relevant channels to the many millions of readers in our broader community. Throughout the year, we delve into the analytics, offering data-driven insights into how a message was received and where your stories resonate with readers across the internet. Being a contributor to Enable Architect means being a better writer, better known Architect, and mentoring future Architects all at once.

If you are an Architect looking to grow your portfolio of published work for your next promotion, an aspiring IT Architect looking to build your resume, or a seasoned Enterprise Architect looking to share your experiences, send a proposal our way by emailing enable-architect@redhat.com.

The site name emphasizes the growing influence of Architects in the modern enterprise. Architects enable the business to make technical decisions. That enablement is possible due to the trust they build with their organization. Architects enable technology teams to deliver on complex systems that are secure, scalable, and informed by industry standards and trends alike. Architects offer that same value to the business, helping executives determine the right balance between cost and speed, buzzword and strategic opportunity. IT Architects--whether called Enterprise Architect, Cloud Architect, or anything else--are the keystone to successful business decisions because all businesses are now technology businesses.

There are many ways to show your support for this growing community of Architects.

We are excited to build this network of expertise together.
