Technical Architects are responsible for designing the technical architecture in a specific IS area and updating it in the medium and long term in response to business needs and services offered to the ENGIE IT catalogue. They endeavor to find the best compromise between:
- the resources of the existing infrastructure;
- alignment with the reference framework in which the IS is integrated;
- IS performance (e.g. scalability, maintainability, operability, reusability, cost).
They ensure that all IT resources and their upgrades are consistent (hardware, applications, databases, networks, middleware, operating systems) by making the most of the state of the art. They make every effort to meet the required level of service and guarantee security.
