How was Training?


Gave me insight into Enterprise Architecture as opposed to IT Architecture. Made me realise we have an Enterprise Architecture already - its about how many better practices we can improve it with. (How mature are we today and where do we want to go) - Enterprise Architect, Experian, UK, Mar 2013

Recommend PEAF?


Yes - good starting point for EA - CTO, Trafigura Ltd, UK, Jan 2015

In relation to the Transformation of Enterprises, there are many Frameworks (Pragmatic EA is tracking over 900) that have been produced to help Enterprises deal with Enterprise Transformation in a more effective and efficient manner.

These things are of various types; "frameworks", ontologies, methodologies, Notations, Architectures, Theories, Models etc, etc, etc. We use the word Framework to refer to them all.

Each of these Frameworks has been designed and engineered to operate with a specific domain or context, for example; strategic planning, project management, enterprise architecture, software design and development, service management, change management, etc, etc etc. We could categorise these Frameworks in different ways:

      Domain - Some Frameworks exist to help with Strategising or Roadmapping, while others exist to help with the design of IT systems, or a particular discipline such as Project Management.

      Coverage - Some Frameworks deal only with Structural elements of Transformation (Categories, Ontologies, meta-models) like Zachman or BMM while others deal more with Procedural elements of Transformation (Methods, Practices, Processes) like eTOM. Others encompass both like PEAF.

      Depth - Some Frameworks provide only high level concepts and guidance, others contain vast amounts of detail and very prescriptive.

      Geography - Some Frameworks exist to serve a particular country or region like The Bank of England Framework, while others are geography independent like BMM.

      Industry - Some Frameworks are Industry specific like eTOM, while others are industry agnostic like BMM.

      Maturity - How mature the framework is - (can be partly related to its age although that can also be inversely proportional!)
