The Dark Matter of the Business Driven Enterprise Architecture Through Business Architectures

In astrophysics Dark Matter is responsible for the universe not flying apart, thus encouraging the growth and stability of the universe’s cohesiveness & structure. In the Business Driven Enterprise Architecture, the Dark Matter of the BDEA is what is ultimately responsible to ensure complete integrity and cohesiveness of a true overall Integrated Enterprise Architecture that is completely known. The Dark Matter of the BDEA comprises proper identification & clarification of Value Chains and Value Streams.

Gaining Alignment on Notation

Delivering value to the business – that’s the intent! Gaining alignment between work underway in the business process arena and work underway in the IT organization is essential if value is actually going to be delivered. And that alignment is not a given; a critical factor is management of the respective “languages” used by business process managers and by IT systems developers. This presentation uses examples from an actual enterprise-level project to spotlight potential pitfalls and illustrate specific approaches that deliver value.

Case Study: Launching a Business Architecture Center of Excellence at Wells Fargo Bank

Business architects feel the need to organize themselves to share best practices, exchange knowledge, highlight successful projects, and gain visibility among executives. The most common approach is to launch a Center of Excellence (COE). Getting funding and establishing relevance within challenging current events confront many COE launch efforts. This session explores an action research case study at Wells Fargo Bank to show how to effectively launch a COE in the midst of post-merger integration activities.

Case Study: Making Complex Policies Visual for the Web

Does your company’s intranet have lengthy policy, or “How to do this process…” webpages? Is compliance a challenge for employees – especially when a policy spans multiple departments and systems? If this sounds familiar, you’ve probably also noticed that your intranet pages act as the glue to link many corporate processes together. In this session, we’ll review some practical, visual techniques for transforming complex paragraphs of policies, or long scrolling pages of process instructions/exceptions into easy to use, and actionable webpages.

Case Study: Putting the Business (Architecture, That Is) Into Government EA

In difficult times, knowing where you're going is increasingly important. Business architecture is a missing link in any advanced organization's long and short range plans for the future. Historically, there has been a tendency in the business/IT management world to view Business Architecture as either an add-on or a separate activity altogether, much as many organizations look at Business Process Management as separate from either Enterprise Architecture or Business Architecture.

Making Processes Simpler, Smarter and More Agile with Decision Management

Identifying, automating and managing the decisions within a process are critical next steps for greater efficiency and effectiveness in organizations today. The focus of automation to date has been on efficiency gains from streamlined workflow, automated integration of information systems and managed worklists. Many largely automated processes remain over-reliant on human intervention at critical junctures. Others are burdened with legacy code or complex processes to handle decision making and are unnecessarily resistant to change as a result.
