Delivering Business Value through Enterprise Architecture

Enterprise Architecture (EA) can deliver value, but you have to prove value in terms that mean something to the business.  Where there is buy-in and engagement, the business may invest more in IT to get more out of it.

While streamlining costs and complexity remain a priority, if organisations are to invest in EA, they may require answers to the following questions:

  • How can an enterprise realise the benefits of EA?
  • How can we translate the business strategy into a technical Enterprise Architecture Framework?
  • What needs to be considered when implementing best practice to shape projects, process and activities?



This workshop will look at the how the EA landscape has changed since the last EA workshop and will discuss these proposed agenda items:


Join this workshop to find out why and how other organisations are tackling the EA challenge, and to learn how the value of an EA strategy is being understood, measured and communicated.
