What’s your Smart Way Forward?

What is Enterprise Architecture?

EA is the process of realising business vision and strategy into the enterprise by developing and improving the key requirements, concerns, principles and models that describe the enterprise’s current and future state and enables its evolution.

In essence, EA involves a systemic approach to business and IT design: it is about understanding, enabling and integrating the building blocks of an organisation to unlock its strategy.

Taking an Enterprise Architecture based approach to business planning in support of business transformation and optimization initiatives. These include Business Process Optimization and Re-engineering, Organisational Design, Risk Management and Business Integration.

IT Management

The ‘business of IT’ is complex and fast moving by nature. Preemptive planning and alignment to business strategy determines whether today’s IT environment will be able to support tomorrow’s business demand. Knotion’s service offering in this space include: IT Strategy development or review, IT Operating Model design, Portfolio Management, IT Risk Management, IT Governance and Compliance; and Sourcing & Bid management.

Training

Our training offering includes TOGAF and ArchiMate courses to prepare candidates for certification. However Knotion does not see certification as the end goal but rather as a byproduct of good understanding gained during our training events. We select experienced architects as trainers so that they are equipped to facilitate discussions around real-world scenarios.

EA Establishment

Establishing or revitalizing an EA capability can be daunting. Knotion’s collaborative approach to establishing an EA capability ensures that the EA practice delivers value to it’s stakeholders from the beginning. Our philosophy of “earning the right to do architecture” means that the EA practice is always building on successes and gaining stakeholder buy-in.

EA Design

Knotion’s value driven approach to EA Design ensures that effort and expense are directed in the most appropriate direction. Aligned to TOGAF, our EA Design methodology has been developed to support the appropriate level of engineering for the customer need while following industry standards. The resultant blueprints and roadmaps become the reference points for decision making and planning discussions at all levels of the organisation. Knotion’s bucket of reference content supporting EA Design includes: Enterprise Performance Management, SOA & Integration, Enterprise Content Management, Business Intelligence, Customer Interaction, Enterprise Risk Management, Information Security and more.
