iSAQB® CPSA Advanced Enterprise Architecture Management (EAM)

Course Description


Enterprise Architecture Management (EAM) brings transparency to the IT landscape and creates the basis for a successful IT strategy.

EAM translates the business strategy into a concrete target operating model and implementation plan and creates transparency about the interrelationships, costs, benefits, and risks of the essential parts of the enterprise’s target operating model. With this information, managers are able to make effective decisions and plan and implement major transformation initiatives.

The development of an entire IT landscape differs significantly from the development of a single IT system and many architects find it difficult to transition from software architecture to enterprise architecture. This seminar provides an overview of Enterprise IT Architecture Management (IT-EAM), including what it is, what are its benefits, and how it can be successfully implemented.

The seminar has a workshop character with time for discussions between the participants regarding their specific needs.
