Today, with most of the organizations becoming more complex in structure and dimensions and distributed in different locations, achieving an optimized performance is not possible by just assigning roles and job description. Instead, processes, information, goals and staff role should match to goals and strategies of the organization. To overcome this issue, a plan should be implemented for defining the relations between all dimensions and elements of the organization and adapt them to changes, if necessary. This plan which consists of information from personnel, processes, places and other dimensions and specifications of the organization is called Enterprise Architecture.
Enterprise architecture divides into four architecture domain.
- Business architecture
- Data architecture
- Applications architecture
- Technology architecture
Enterprise architecture is required to enable the organizations
- Effectively manage information through IT
- Enhance IT systems to meet the needs of organizations by removing fragmented and duplicated information, make IT systems more understandable, improve IT systems to be more responsive to change and Focus the investments in IT on a strategic plan
- Evolve enterprises to integrated environments
- Optimize the business to benefit most from technology
- Increase accuracy of systems and business analysis
- Improve strategic decision making process by providing multiple views of organization
- Improve business and IT efficiency
- Achieve a better return on investment by reducing the complexity of business and IT, increasing flexibility, optimizing the structure and reducing the risk of investment and cost of ownership

On February 2014, National institute of standards and technology (NIST) released a Framework for Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity also known as NIST cybersecurity framework. Focusing on the high impact risks, NIST framework categorizes five key framework functions needed to drive a comprehensive cybersecurity program:
- Identifying risks to resources supporting critical functions
- Protecting these resources and limiting the impact of cybersecurity events
- Detecting incidents that have occurred
- Responding to the detection of events
- Recovering following response procedures
Each function places heavy reliance on the development of those preceding it
- You cannot protect your environment correctly without first identifying your key systems and the risks faced by each
- You cannot to respond to events if you have not first implemented proper measures to detect them
Each function has several categories subdividing them into more detailed groups of activities
NIST framework is composed of three parts
- Framework Core
- Set of activities, desired outcomes, and applicable references (e.g., ISO, NIST 800-53)
- Consists of five functions: Identify, Protect, Detect, Respond, Recover
- Identifies key categories for each function
- Framework Implementation Tiers
- Characterize cybersecurity practices over a range from Partial (Tier 1) to Adaptive (Tier 4)
- Provide context on how an organization views cybersecurity risk
- Framework Profiles
- Used to identify opportunities to improve cybersecurity posture by comparing a Current profile (“as is” state) to a Target profile (“to be” state)
- Supports prioritization and measurement of progress towards Target profile
Using NIST Framework to address security concerns Allows organizations to:
- Describe current cybersecurity posture
- Describe target state for cybersecurity
- Identify and prioritize opportunities for improvement
- Assess progress towards target state
- Communicate using common language among internal and external stakeholders about cybersecurity risk
NIST Framework Complements, does not replace, risk management processes, Organizations without cybersecurity programs can use Framework as reference to establish one.
Due to comprehensive addressing of security concerns and above points along with many other benefits, International IT house has decided to use NIST cybersecurity framework as a guideline for implementing security structure, providing custom solutions to maximize data and communication security in full to suit the clients’ level of protection and to fit in their budget.
International IT house provides below services in accordance to five key functions of NIST framework to design security environments.
- Cybersecurity Software
- Hardware Appliances
- Compliance audit
- Vulnerability assessment
- Security reports
- High availability and disaster recovery solutions

Enterprise resource planning (ERP) is an industry term for the broad set of activities that helps an organization manage its business.
An important goal oF ERP is to facilitate the flow of information so business decisions can be data-driven. ERP software suites are built to collect and organize data from various levels of an organization to provide management with insight into key performance indicators (KPIs) in real time.
ERP software modules can help an organization’s administrators monitor and manage supply chain, procurement, inventory, finance, product lifecycle, projects, human resources and other mission-critical components of a business through a series of interconnected executive dashboards. In order for an ERP software deployment to be useful, however, it needs to be integrated with other software systems the organization uses. For this reason, deployment of a new ERP system in-house can involve considerable business process reengineering, employee retraining and back-end information technology (IT) support for database integration, data analytics and ad hoc reporting.
Legacy ERP systems tend to be architected as large, complex homogeneous systems which do not lend themselves easily to a software-as-a-service (SaaS ERP) delivery model. As more companys begin to store data in the cloud, however, ERP vendors are responding with cloud-based services to perform some functions of ERP — particularly those relied upon by mobile users. An ERP implementation that uses both on-premises ERP software and cloud ERP services is called two-tiered ERP.
