We leverage free Open standards, TOGAF, IT4IT, etc. We use them to accelerate our work. We deliberately give back.
Over the past year the team at Conexiam drafted a consistent set of advice on the minimum problems an EA Team faces. We drew from our tools (Navigate, our practical EA with TOGAF and Navigate training, our governance toolkit, Pilot, and our approach Predictable Enterprise Architecture).
Our work developing strong high-functioning EA Teams and delivering useful enterprise architecture is our foundation. We saw four essential challenges:
- configuring your EA team to deliver to the purpose required and in alignment with your processes and operational needs
- developing and using enterprise architecture for purpose and considering the set of practices that enable a functional EA Landscape
- governing creation of architecture, governing an EA team, and most importantly using an enterprise architecture to govern change
- using different standards and reference tools to accelerate your work without trying to redraft them. This paper uses Open Group standards and Digital Transformation as an example of stitching standards together
