Dr. Williamson is responsible for a team of Architects and Engineers that are:

  • Developing information and communications technology, enterprise architectures, strategies, and bringing fresh innovation to deal with the inherent challenges in a dynamic environment of rapid technology evolution.
  • Providing views of an integrated five dimensional enterprise model “Business, Information, Applications, IT Infrastructure and IT Governance” to analyze and determine the right set of IT related decisions to enable and support clients’ business strategies. Service Oriented Architect “SOA” provides an architectural proposition that uses the notion of “Service” as the underlining enabling mechanism for business IT alignment.
  • Dr. Williamson and his team understands advanced architectural concepts, such as those proposed through official organizations such as the Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL), architectural frameworks such as those proposed by Zachman and The Open Group Architecture Framework (TOGAF), the standards outlined by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), the Department of Defense Architecture Framework (DoDAF) , and the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) developed Federal Enterprise Architecture (FEA).
