Driving Business Innovation with Enterprise Architecture

This seminar is designed for Enterprise Architects and the people they work with, to explore how best to make Enterprise Architecture a highly-valued innovative and influential business discipline. At its core, this means integrating formalised Enterprise Architecture with corporate and business strategies, business planning, and the process of creating value from investments in change. The focus of the seminar and workshop is on how to embed Enterprise Architecture into mainstream business decision-making, rather than on the frameworks and processes that Enterprise Architects use.

Cloud Computing for Architects

Cloud Computing presents a variety of operational and deployment models that can help enterprises reduce infrastructure costs, provide better customer value, and position themselves for the future. But organizations won’t succeed with the Cloud unless they understand the strengths and weaknesses of Cloud Computing and have a carefully planned architectural approach that positions Cloud-based capabilities in the context of existing IT assets and challenges.

Understanding Enterprise Architecture

This workshop will give you 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 your organization through EA. 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.
