BUSINESS ARCHITECTURE MASTER SERIES & Workshop: MAKING IT REAL!
Business architecture was never intended to be a standalone discipline. As a result, organizations are increasingly leveraging business architecture to ground and align a variety of business disciplines, ensuring that these disciplines collectively work towards common goals, using a shared business perspective. The Business Architecture Master Series pushes the boundaries of the discipline, focusing on four high profile topics: strategy realization, customer experience and design, business agility and enterprise architecture alignment. Each half day session explores the current state of the practice along with real-world successes and future directions. Sessions interactively engage leading experts, practitioners and attendees. The Master Series opens a new window into business architecture and the value it can delivery to organizations around the globe. Complementing the Master Series is the day three, Business Architecture Scenario-based Workshop that challenges attendees with usage scenarios that leverage established industry reference model content. The Business Architecture Master Series and Workshop go beyond the basics, raising attendees’ understanding of the discipline to a new level.

Business Architecture & Enterprise Architecture Alignment
Business architecture has been defined in varying degrees as part of the enterprise architecture (EA) discipline or in parallel to, but aligned with, the EA discipline. Regardless of how you prefer to define it, both architectures have to work together to efficiently and effectively achieve enterprise strategic outcomes. This session discusses how organizations can and have leveraged business architecture to inform the IT aspects of EA and enable business-driven, IT architecture transformation in practice, and how IT architecture has helped to inform digital transformation of the business. Topics include:

The Business Architecture Scenario-based Workshop provides attendees with hands-on experience in the discipline. Learning how to apply business architecture to actual situations is a major challenge for many practitioners. Attendees will be given real world scenarios and be asked to come up with approaches and solutions leveraging business architecture reference model content, supplied to attendees. Each session will be hands-on, where attendees work in teams to come up with various approaches and share the results with the group. Join this exciting opportunity to engage with fellow practitioners.
For those newer to the discipline, consider attending the Business Architecture Primer being offered on Monday afternoon, November 18, prior to the Master Series. The Primer is free to Master Series attendees. Registration required.
