Architects in the enterprise are often regarded as ivory tower residents who bestow their utopian plans upon project teams in the form of colorful diagrams that bear little to no resemblance to reality. The most suspicious in this group are often the "Enterprise Architects" who are perceived as being furthest from actual technical problems. However, large-scale IT operation and transformation require transparency across hundreds or thousands of applications running on all sorts of middleware in data centers around the globe. The very enterprise architects are likely the only ones who stand a chance to bring transparency into such an environment and who can direct IT investments in the hundreds of millions of Euros towards modernization and run-cost reduction. This sounds a lot more exciting and valuable than drawing pictures! This session takes a serious but light-hearted look at the role of enterprise architects in modern IT organizations.

In this webinar EA expert Danny Greefhorst gives an essential introduction to Enterprise Architecture and TOGAF 9.1. Also, he explains the relationship of TOGAF with major IT frameworks ITIL, COBIT and PRINCE2; the differences in approach, but, more importantly, the interoperability and joint usage opportunities. Many organizations have adopted various frameworks in parallel, while IT professionals working for these organizations often focus on 1 or 2. TOGAF helps aligning the IT investments to the organization's strategic goals and helps finding synergies in the IT landscape. As TOGAF is a very high level framework, which requires to be tailored to the organization, understanding the interfaces with other IT frameworks helps building a better Architecture.
At 45 Drives, our storage servers are built on free and open-source operating systems. When buying our Storinators, we want to make it really easy for our users to decide which operating system is right for them. To help simplify this decision, R&D Engineer Brett Kelly has divided the operating systems into 2 different categories; Server OS’ and NAS OS'. In our latest video, he breaks down both OS categories and gives use cases for each in hopes to help users decide which OS is right for their needs.

Episode 50 - More uses of capability maps The capability-map outlined in Episode 49 is a powerful tool for enterprise-architecture - both to guide architectural change, and to help build engagement in architecture across the entire organisation. Yet it can also act as a foundation for a wide variety of other uses, delivering huge value to the enterprise. In this episode we explore some of these other uses, including -- orientation for onboarding of new staff -- visual-directory -- project-mapping to identify clashes, overlaps and gaps -- guidance for spend-control for change-projects -- support for activity-based costing The topic for this episode was suggested by Bruce Kay.

Episode 24 - Enterprise-architecture in a small-business
Can enterprise-architecture be of value to a small-business? What are some basic EA principles that could be useful in everyday practice?
This episode explores four key tactics that any business can use:
-- identify the broader shared-enterprise that the business is in
-- identify the shared vision and values of that broader enterprise, to validate the business-model and business-architecture
-- use the tagline of 'Things work better when they work together, on-purpose' to guide how to make the business work better as a whole
-- build the architecture-maturity in a structured way.
The topic for this episode was suggested by Daniel Faucitt.
