This professional capability is increasingly in demand, also in relation to the digital transformation that is guiding companies to increasingly agile organisational models, making IT infrastructure essential: «I work behind the scenes, making what you see possible. The aim is to help the whole company to achieve its goals, supporting it in the process of continuous innovation. Underlying this are the pillars of enterprise architecture (business, data, applications and technology), yet the approach is holistic and proactive».
To immediately clarify the concept, Daniele describes two important projects he heads at Terna that demonstrate the value of enterprise architecture for the entire company: EAI (Enterprise Application Integration) and EAS (Enterprise Architecture Strategy).
The first, focused on individual teams or organisational structures, is a project aimed at redefining mapping and technologies supporting applications integration, through a scalable, efficient and resilient framework that overcomes widespread technology silos within the company. The second is company-wide, aimed at all Terna people, both supporting processes for training, onboarding and daily operations offering a global view of processes, applications, integration and technology in an enterprise setting such as that of Terna, and also aiding leads and top management in portfolio, planning and budgeting processes, providing metrics, procedures and tools to guide strategic choices.
