900% ROI on hiring an IT Architect is reality

This was a successful year for my customers.

I have created new capabilties and prepared some proper strategic support. Metrics for capabilities and support are still hard to define and to use. Those measurements are on the radar for next year.

I have, however, advised, designed and controlled to save structurally more than 1.5 million Euros. This makes a general ROI of 900%.

That is not bad for an architect. That is what I call an executable architect, a true enterprise architect. Or would you prefer to “profitable architect“?
