A solution architect, also called a solutions architect, is a professional who helps clients by creating personalized solutions for their IT requirements. They assist companies' management teams by assessing business requirements and presenting them with strategic plans. These professionals may work alongside other IT architects, engineers and analysts.

Solutions architecture includes a variety of processes and sub-processes, which allow business leaders to implement technological fixes. Solutions architects oversee technical predictions, examine potential challenges and deliver innovative solutions. They review how they can combine aspects of business, technology and information to address and resolve organizations' issues. They can then present several steps to solve the business's technological challenges. This process serves as a connection between technical architecture and enterprise architecture.
