Enterprise architects and records managers have much to gain by working together. Records managers can contribute their expert knowledge of their organisation’s ‘business’ and its ‘data’ assets. By working with enterprise architects, records managers can improve the visibility of their programs, receive assistance in strategic tasks such as the development of business cases, and, most importantly, can ensure that records management requirements are embedded within their organisation’s enterprise architecture.

State Records recently published a new Recordkeeping In Brief RIB 59 – An introduction to enterprise architecture for records managers. This short guide introduces enterprise architecture and describes the benefits of collaborating with enterprise architects.

If you’ve worked in partnership with enterprise architects, we’d love to hear about it, please share your experiences as comments on this post.
