Architecture Review Board
The Architecture Review Board will build the technology roadmap that enables Loyola University Chicago to fulfill its mission and vision effectively while adapting to a changing higher education environment.
The Architecture Review Board (ARB) engages and consults with groups who are interested in assessing technology. These groups are called Technology Assessment Committees (TAC) and an ARB member will sponsor each TAC. The membership of a TAC should be diverse and representative of the area being researched. ARB members are available for consulting on a TAC. Research, needs analysis and technology assessment results created by a TAC will be submitted to and reviewed by the ARB who initiates the governance steps for introducing technology to Loyola.

ENTERPRISE ARCHITECTURE PRINCIPLES:
Enterprise architecture principles are a set of guidelines to be applied to increase the consistency and quality of technology decision making so that the appropriate level of due diligence is done to ensure technology changes or new acquisitions are compatible with our current technology investments.

CURRENT/FUTURE STATE DIAGRAMS:
The current and future state diagrams provide a topical view of the enterprise technologies deployed at Loyola University Chicago. The current state diagram defines the technology and their relationships as they exist today. It defines the "as is". The future state diagram defines the technology and relationships as they will be at some point in the future. It represents the technology position of the future or "to be".

The technology roadmap is a key component of the Information Technology Services technology strategy. It provides an overview of the core enterprise technologies undergoing change and documents the stage or "lifecycle point" of each technology. The roadmap defines how to move technology from "as is" to "to be". Click here to view the Technology Roadmap.

GLOSSARY OF TECHNOLOGY TERMS:
Communication of technical information is key to the success of any enterprise architecture program. The consistent use and reference to technology terms allows everyone involved in architectural discussions to have a common understanding of the topic at hand.
