Conexiam is a management consulting company that delivers value through enterprise architecture. We believe EA is the smart way for organizations to solve complex problems and deliver on their business strategy.
Conexiam offers two streams of services – consulting and training. On the consulting side, we deliver business solutions or enable our clients’ in-house EA team to solve complex problems on their own. On the training side, Conexiam’s consultants with experience and interest in teaching deliver courses in EA capability, skills and domains.
Conexiam’s enterprise architecture methodology is designed to deliver straightforward answers to any complex problem.
Conexiam’s training programs are all about getting enterprise architecture to work for you. EA helps organizations, large or small, public or private, respond better to change and successfully deliver business strategy. We help our clients acquire the knowledge and skills they need to build and implement enterprise architecture in any public or private business environment. Conexiam gives you the tools to evolve your business and IT systems so that they achieve your company’s current and future objectives.
Our EA courses offer the exact tools and techniques we use in our consulting business. Our case studies reflect actual client challenges and are designed to create problem-solving opportunities that give our students real-world EA experience. In addition to providing TOGAF® 9 & IT4IT™ certification, we instruct and license our clients to use our EA methodology and toolkit, Navigate™. We also offer a wide range of domain specific and skill-based courses.
Our courses can be broken down as:
- Certification Training
Training using foundation Open Group standards, TOGAF 9 Certification and IT4IT Certification
This includes our innovative TOGAF®, the video, which was originally developed to address in-house training for time-crunched staff. We have extended our on-line certification offering to include IT4IT™, the video.
- Free Skill Training
Conexiam made a strategic choice to share our approach. Part of this is providing free on-line training in Enterprise Architecture
Specialized training in domains within an Enterprise Architecture including, Business Architecture, Security Architecture, and Solution Architecture
- Techniques & Skill
Specialized training in skills and techniques that help a practicing architect. Like TOGAF, the video, these were originally developed to address in-house needs and the needs of our consulting clients.
Often our clients don’t want just-training, they are looking to tie training together with focused acceleration of a project at-hand. We have developed a set of packaged workshops, such as Stakeholder Engagement & Roadmapping, where we leap-in and mix your current problem with focused training. In effect it is a very focused version of our mentoring service.
On the consulting side, Conexiam builds straightforward, executable and repeatable enterprise architecture and solution architecture. A central element to a high functioning EA team is clarity of purpose.
Understanding the purpose of the architecture engagement, and what information is required allows Conexiam to tailor the architecture deliverables. Conexiam has developed a Predictable EA approach using fixed periods of time with known deliverables and work product.
Our work on establishing & enhancing EA teams is focused around the central purposes of enterprise architecture. Typically, there are four broad purposes of an EA Capability:
- EA to support Strategy: provide an end-to-end target architecture, and develop roadmaps of change over longer time periods. In this context, architecture is used to identify change initiatives and supporting portfolio and programs.
- EA to support Portfolio: Deliver EA to support cross-functional, multi-phase, and multi-project change initiatives. In this context, architecture is used to identify projects, set their terms of reference, align their approaches, identify synergies, and govern their execution.
- EA to support Project: Deliver EA to support the Enterprise’s project delivery method to assure compliance with architectural governance, and to support the integration and alignment between projects.
- EA to support Solution Deployment: Deliver EA that is used to support solution deployment by defining how the change will be designed and delivered, and finally, act as a governance framework for change.
