Architects come in many guises. There are those who will look at the bigger picture and take a more holistic view, defining company-wide technological roadmaps. This is the role of the Enterprise Architect. Solution Architects are more focused on delivering a technical architecture for a given area such as Applications, Data, Infrastructure or Networks and in these areas TAs will carry out high level functional and architectural systems design. Today's Architects and Designers will typically have proficiency in architectural development methods to develop security architectures and SOAs.
