This Friday I’ll be presenting on the topic of ‘Enterprise Architecture Case Studies’ in Aberystwyth, in an event organised and hosted by the South Wales branch of the BCS.
For more information the event is advertised here with the BCS. The core details are:
- Date: 8 May 2009
- Time: 17:00 Refreshments / 18:00 Start
- Location: The finger buffet is in the foyer of the Computer Science Building and the talk itself will be in Lecture Theatre `A’ in the Physical Sciences Building, both on the Penglais Campus, Aberystwyth University, Aberystwyth.
- Cost: Free, open to all (including non-members of the BCS or IET), no registration required.
Here’s what I generally say as an overview of this talk:
The case studies presented explore my experiences with Enterprise Architecture in three major customer engagements. They include an Enterprise Architecture team which led its company into a £70+ million ‘pitfall’; the use of Enterprise Architecture to define a Service Oriented Architecture; and an example of how much Enterprise Architecture is about achieving the proper governance model.
- Enterprise Architecture best practices drawn from multiple engagements.
- How to use good governance to avoid and limit the ‘Ivory Tower’ syndrome.
- How to combine Enterprise Architecture and Service Oriented Architecture to deliver sustainable Transformation.
Given the current downturn I’ll also go into some of the issues facing EA programmes due to the credit crunch and what can be done to ensure that they continue to receive executive sponsorship and funding.
Happy to answer any and all questions; please consider that I’ll be attempting to condense three major and very large scale Enterprise Architecture case studies into a talk lasting an hour and a half or so, therefore I will definitely be around to speak with afterwards. ¨C13C
