Understanding ENTERPRISE ARCHITECTURE:
Structure, Domains, Disciplines, Value
The complexity of today's IT environments, regulations and competitive pressures are driving many Enterprises to initiate IT architecture programs. While Enterprise Architecture (EA) isn't new, it has produced mixed results. Successful organizations have streamlined costs, improved alignment between Business strategy and IT systems, and improved flexibility. Now, the demand for qualified architects is even greater.
Unfortunately, most organization or architects do not have an overall understanding of what Enterprise Architecture is, how programs are structured, the roles, responsibilities and skills of an Enterprise architect, what Enterprise Architecture looks like, how to create architecture, how to apply it, and how to deliver value to their organization through EA. This workshop is aimed at making sure you understand these questions and how to achieve these results. We will illustrate the many different aspect of EA and discuss how to deliver maximum value with EA architecture and avoid common pitfalls and mistakes. Topics will include EA principles and practices, EA domains of Business, information, application, and technology architecture, and the architectural skills and thinking needed to be an Enterprise architect.
The workshop is structured as a mix of presentation, interactive discussion, and group based exercises, so the students get the chance to apply the techniques learned to example scenarios during the facilitated exercises.
