What is the target architecture worksheet?
Target architecture sets the framework for planning, assigning resources, and streamlining activities to reach a desired future state. It serves as a blueprint for both enterprise architects and project managers to follow.
This worksheet is a six-block table template to organize target architecture along two axes. It was created in partnership with Clint Ewing, Principal Enterprise Architect at Quanterix.
