The aim of this chapter — and the book — is to enlarge our thinking sphere beyond current assignments and projects. This chapter discusses IT organization in its totality and introduces concepts like Enterprise IT Architecture and Lean IT. This chapter also discusses, in brief, business patterns, which are different from the runtime patterns we use when constructing programs. I will touch upon the concepts while keeping discussions as simple as possible — my approach throughout the book. If you wish to go into detail about any specific topic, refer to the bibliography section at the end of the book or to more advanced material specific to that topic.
