In 2017, Gartner published on Cloud Architect role with many activities along with the required skills. We may not be able to use the entire activities related to this role. But there are some mandated activities we can use them in regular business.
I have extracted some of the important points where in the current trend the IT Management practitioners can utilize them and see the differentiation from your past executions on this role. A discussion video is attached below for your perusal.
Finally, I would say you are mandated to separate this role from DevOps Activities assigning and dedicate the role for;
Cloud Infrastructure Planning,
implementing effectively for business needs
So many burning issues related to DevOps and Cloud can be separated and resolved faster to move forward. This way many risks can be reduced!!
If you are an IT management practitioner; and would like to get any clarifications to implement these practices you are advised to contact me on FB and have a call.
