This presentation provides an overview of the Skills Framework for the Information Age (SFIA) and shows how the adoption of this framework is impacting the definition of Enterprise Architecture (EA) skills.

The talk will touch on how different EA skills frameworks were designed and are being adopted by industry, government and academia. The Open Group is one of the many organisations that has mapped their certification programs to the SFIA, while professional associations like the British Computer Society and the Australian Computer Society adopted the SFIA framework. Even public sector organisations, such as the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology of the Government of India, have adopted the SFIA as the basis for their e-Governance Competency Framework.

The presentation will conclude with some advice on how to adopt SFIA within your organisation.
