Thanks to the great minds at work. we have seen over the years that IT Services and Technology Industry is always in flux. Some of the best-practices that most of the great industry leaders subscribed to 5-years ago are not even on the list of best-practices now. This only reflects the speed at which the application technologies are being introduced and are being deprecated. This flux and continuous evolution is a sign of the industry trying to adapt to the increasing demands of the global internet age that we live in. The key challenge to this continuous evolution is the need for a strong foundation that will remain consistent and will be ready for the changing technology demands. One of the proven methods for laying such foundation is a good Enterprise Architecture team. It has also been recognized that an Enterprise Architecture team needs a strong Project Management team to play the role of Business Liaison. In addition, Enterprise Architecture and Project Management teams collaborate to perform IT governance to ensure compliance with the standards and policies laid out by the executive leadership. Patton Labs Technology leadership has identified the changing demands of the IT industry and the need to adapt to it as being the core requirements for the Enterprise Architecture team at Patton Labs. To accomplish this task the Board of Directors of Patton Labs has created the Patton Labs Technology Center of Excellence (PL TCOE).
