Making the Leap

Interest in business architecture is growing dramatically. Though there is a great deal of discussion, there remains little consensus about what business architecture is, how it should be pursued, who should drive it, and what value it delivers. Enterprise architects believe that business architecture is their responsibility. But in reality business architecture is being practiced by many other roles. Business analysts are particularly well positioned to play a leading role in the development and application of business architecture and increase their business impact. Is business architecture something new or just a recasting of current roles? Is it right for you? What are the attributes that describe the currently successful business architects? How can business analysts learn and apply business architecture techniques? This session will answer these questions and more.

Key Takeaways:

  • What’s different between business analysis and business architecture
  • How to move from analysis to architecting
  • Attributes of successful business architects
