The Solution Architect requires knowledge and skills that are both broad and deep and be able to work across complex heterogeneous systems and environments preferably within Finance applications.

The Architecture will be defined on a global scale.

The initial project is to re-architect a currently global segregated system originally set up as country based into OneIT.
