The practice of architecture (enterprise, business, data, etc.) needs a services-based approach to provide business-outcome focused results. Architecture services communicate the business value of architecture to stakeholders concerned about issues such as cloud migration, improving citizen experience, cloud security, and more.
Participants will learn how to organize architecture services into discreet plays to ensure delivery consistency. Individual plays identify the types of service, the target stakeholders (i.e., customers), recommend team composition, work approach, deliverables, tools, and more. Plays are organized into a playbook providing a descriptive foundation to grow the architecture practice team’s skills, toolsets, and adapt as organizational customer needs evolve.
Participants will receive access to a sample playbook containing a range of plays addressing architectural services and orientation on the different parts and tailoring them for individual team use. During the session, participants will walk through the details to deliver a business-aligned portfolio analysis service. This enhanced application rationalization service will identify deliverables, methodology, staffing, etc. Participants will also learn how to develop tailored service plays for their organization based upon EA program maturity.
