Modelling for Business Change - EA, ArchiMate® & transforming universities
Enterprise Architecture Practice Group lead, JISC CETIS
Assistant Director, JISC CETIS
Portal Content Manager, Leeds Metropolitan University
The UK University sector is undergoing unprecedented change in the face of a seismic shift in funding, competition and student expectations. Information technology and services are recognised as key to their development. Almost a quarter of the community is now adopting the enterprise architecture approach as an enabler of change, with modelling and the ArchiMate language as essential building blocks.
After introducing this community programme, the business drivers and its unusual ‘just’ enough’ approach to Enterprise Architecture and modelling, we’ll describe how and why ArchiMate became a natural choice and how analysts and architects learned to do modelling on slender budgets learning from each other. Our case study looks at how a university got started with ArchiMate, along with their challenges and lessons learned, followed by some early success stories and future directions.
