Conexiam teaches what we do. Enterprise Architecture, TOGAF and IT4IT are not theoretical concepts. They are central to our business. The CSC & Conexiam Agile Enterprise Architecture Case study (download) explores how we deliver Enterprise Architecture. How we use TOGAF in the real-world.
CSC’s Kris Venkatesh and Conexiam’s Dave Hornford presented the at the Open Group’s Ottawa conference.
CSC is a worldwide leader for business, legal, and financial services. CSC “suffers” from success. They have grown immensely over 115 years. Doubled in size between 2010 and 2015 with a goal to continue organic and strategic growth through 2020 and beyond. Growth brought CSC the expected legacy: operational practices, IT applications, and customer-facing applications. Making it harder to stay agile. Making it harder to sustain market leadership
To accelerate its journey, CSC partnered with Conexiam. The case explores how CSC leveraged Conexiam’s Predictable Enterprise Architecture to accelerate its journey. CSC wanted useful enterprise architecture and a high functioning EA team. Acceleration matters. Measure Time to Latte.
“Using this approach, we moved further in 7 weeks than we would have in a year”

Conexiam’s Predictable EA leverages Conexiam Navigate. Navigate & Predictable EA are configurations. We use TOGAF as a framework that provides the essential scaffolding. Solid repeatable practices that are universal and generalized. The universal TOGAF framework must be optimized for every organization. Conexiam’s architecture toolsets, Navigate™ and Pilot™ accelerate the optimization.
Conexiam TOGAF Training
We teach the exact tools and techniques we use. In fact, we use our training in our consulting. As heavy consumers of our own training we work to improve it Especially effective distance education.
At CSC we used our packaged training to support the Predictable Enterprise Architecture service:
- EA with TOGAF and Navigate using ABACUS provided practical hands-on quick-start CSC’s EA Capability Journey
- TOGAF, the video supporting CSC’s staff desire to obtain TOGAF Certification.
Publications, TOGAF & IT4IT used
We openly share our experience and expertise. We are active in the Open Group’s development of standards. More importantly, providing guidance on how to use standards. When it comes to establishing an EA Capability, Conexiam has written the book. “The Leader’s Guide to Establishing and Evolving an EA Capability.”
As part of the Predictable Enterprise Architecture service at CSC we referenced:
- Leader’s Guide to Establishing and Evolving an Enterprise Architecture Capability
- World Class EA: A Practitioner’s Approach to Developing Enterprise Architecture Whitepaper
- World Class EA: Governor’s Approach to developing and using Enterprise Architecture Whitepaper
- Digital Transformation Strategy to Implementation using Open Group Standards
