Last year Conexiam made a strategic decision to share our knowledge base with the world. We are undertaking an active path of taking highly re-usable parts of Navigate™ and Pilot™ and putting them into a format where they are generally accessible. We make active use of standards in all of our work, and offer all publications to The Open Group’s Forums, where our contribution can be peer reviewed.
Continuing with our practice we have a set of documents that help frame an EA practice.
Second, guidance for a Practitioner that highlights how to use TOGAF in the field, delivering useful enterprise architecture.
Third, assembling standards to accelerate a digital transformation journey. Digital transformation requires a strategic architecture, portfolio and project management, IT transformation (IT4IT, DevOps or Cloud computing), risk and governance.
Our materials in this series are structured to walk an EA team from developing an architecture to support strategy through implementation, leading to providing sufficient and compelling data to formulate new strategies. They are based on industry leading standards we use every day. We actively use these materials in our EA Capability Workshop and other Workshops.
We will be opening our conversation while these materials are being drafted and reviewed. The first of these conversations, the Architecture Graveyard, is aimed at practitioners and team leaders. It is a series of short traps our EA Capability Practice observes in struggling EA teams.
