The Enterprise Architecture Strategy can be described as the starting point business to IT alignment. If actionable alignment of corporate goals and technology plans to realize those goals are the foundation of the IT strategy, increase performance and enhanced perception of value is possible. One of the biggest complaints of implementation of Enterprise Architecture is that the benefits aren’t measurable. One of the most common reasons to implement an EA is for the sake of efficiencies, and improved performance. Quick wins can be the time and cost savings in the annual IT planning cycle, but also the wisdom behind coming from a structured strategic approach can breed measured value. 

This webinar will walk the attendee through some of the benefits and then an actual mapping from an Enterprise Architecture strategy through annual IT planning using the Enterprise Architecture process, and planned performance improvement. It will cover the steps required by IT management to extend the EA Process into the IT planning process, estimating and budget planning. 

We will cover a case study and the methods for customizing this plan for your organization so that it may become a repeatable process and provide measurable savings in your organizations resources. 

Why should you attend: Each year, the CIO or Director of Information Technology is faced with coming up with their IT budget and plans for the upcoming year. It can be almost certain to say that new projects and needs have come up since the last cycle, and there are projects that remain uninitiated from the prior years. Corporate focus has likely changed, and personnel and resources are unlikely constant. Often organizations scramble when it’s time to do that planning, and don’t necessarily have a repeatable planning process in place. 

When the management team embark on their planning exercise, it is often time-consuming and resource intensive because must research and estimation has to take place and it becomes a bit of a chess game. The organization often doubts that the IT department hears what they want and also doubts the performance will match the time and costs incurred. 

What if your organization used Enterprise Architecture Strategy as a means to ensure that value will be created and the focus will be on what the business needs and wants most, yielding a higher IT Performance Scorecard?
