Your enterprise is a complex system like any living organism, constantly evolving to adapt to its environment. The Enterprise’s Architecture is a blue print of its structure and operations that track how the enterprise has changed to respond to its day-to-day business challenges to ensure the business achieve its vision.

There has never been a more urgent time for a new agile enterprise architecture that respond effectively to the demands of digital transformation in today’s wired world. Digitization, Mobility, and Internet of Things (IoT) generates large amount of data across the enterprise and its immediate ecosystem.

Agile EA goes beyond documentation and framework to leverage Big Data Analytics and provides a pulse of the enterprise. It bridges the gap between enterprise strategy and technology delivery.

Tailored Architectural Framework

Tailored Architectural Framework (TAF) is a description of the future processes to be used by IT to perform its duties. This includes detailed written procedures, roles and resulting outcomes.

TAF is based on a tailored version of an EA framework (TOGAF) for defining enterprise architecture; SCRUM for the delivery; PMP for project management; RUP for Solution architecture; and so on. Open standards ensure transparency.

It encompasses Solution Delivery, Service Provisioning, Technical Infrastructure Management, Security, and Business Relationship Management.

Outcomes :

  • The BAF in Eclipse Process Framework Format
  • Multiple Delivery Methods in Dynamic HTML Format  
  • Presentation & Reference Material
