Question 1:As information systems become more complex, the development of architecture innetworked e-business systems has emerged in the information system field to manage thiscomplexity. Architectures in networked e-business systems serves as a high-level blueprint whichserves in understanding its internal structure to aid in the design, redesign, configuration andmaintenance of its information system (Grefen, 2015).As we have seen on the business side of networked e-business, the demand infunctionality for automated support for e-business operations has become increasingly prevalent.In addition, the same increased demand for functionality can be applied to the quality in these e-business systems as they are seen as mission-critical for many organizations. This creates atension field between requirements in functionality and quality.On the technology side of networked e-business, the same requirement demands forbusiness can be seen developing for technology (McKinsey Global Institute, 2018). As e-business systems continue to develop, technology is advanced to meet these requirements infunctionality for networked e-business systems. As the technology advances, the more complexthey become when combined and integrated into these systems, requiring an increased structureto keep this technology running smoothly and under control. Without proper structureimplemented into these e-business systems, these interrelated technologies would be incohesive.Again, this creates a tension field between the various technologies and the required structedneeded.In order to manage the relationship between business and technology, clear structures ofan abstract nature must be implemented to ensure that each aspect is independent of specific,concrete decisions made at both the business and technology side (Grefen, 2015). Thisindependency ensures that these structures remain stable over time and form an interfacebetween the B and O aspect and T aspect of the BOAT framework. The architecture aspect servesas the pivot point between both the business-oriented aspect and technology-oriented aspect ofthe BOAT framework.ReferencesGrefen, P.
