  4. 4. Commonly heard statements Myth or Reality? “Why should we bother with Enterprise Architecture?” “Architecture is a cost overhead we cannot afford.” “Architects don’t understand the business and are completely disconnected from our world.” “Let’s cut to the chase and get straight on with designing the solution we need with the best technology.” “Not having the business knowledge often kills EA initiatives because the projects tend to be done for the sake of technology and not for successful business outcomes”. “We are in tough economic conditions make more of what you have with less cost and overhead – stop all non urgent projects at once!” We know How do I know solutions to every what I want, problem? What’s when I don’t your problem? know what you can do for me Architecting the Enterprise Limited Copyright © 2012
  5. 5. Enterprise Architecture excellence requires highly skilled, capable people whomeasure success through achieving against agreed business outcomes.World class Enterprise Architects are assessed on the following critical attributes :- Leadership – how to move people and the business on. Strategic Planning- execution of the company strategic vision into execution. Technical Expertise – recommend technology investments that will create successful business outcomes. Financial Management – the ability to view the IT budget as a portfolio of assets, with a strategic vision, whilst mitigating against risk & increased cost. Operational Excellence – evidence of a strong portfolio of successfully delivered EA projects. Innovation- driving innovation and realising business value by architecting the capability.

  9. 9. Elevating Enterprise Architecture Elevating Enterprise ArchitectureEA Business Objective of the course: To equip the Enterprise Architect (EA) with a defined ‘toolbox’ of business skills to compliment their technical knowledge, which enhances their personal and professional function and enables them to communicate and present ideas to business. Architecting the Enterprise Limited Copyright © 2012
  10. 10. Why are business skills important? Elevating Enterprise Architecture► EA is a structured and integrated approach to business and IT transformation.► Enterprise Architects are key agents of such change and their performance is critically dependent on soft skills around leadership, communications and empowerment.► These softer skills plus an effective partnership with the business will lead to a successful use of EA in business transformation. Architecting the Enterprise Limited Copyright © 2012
  11. 11. What is the value? Elevating Enterprise Architecture ► By pitching a value proposition to Business Leaders and other key stakeholders in their language, the Architects will be viewed as a partner, rather than “just the technical specialist”. ► The Softer Skills increasingly prevalent as a deal breaker in many hiring decisions. ► Executives are measured on their ability to motivate an organisation, to make clear and well-balanced decisions and their ability to develop and communicate ideas and visions.
