Are you missing a trick? Organisations that build Enterprise Architectures without SOA will miss an opportunity to address the two most enduring complaints that the business has levelled at IT: slowness and inflexibility.
Enterprise Architecture (EA) is in revival and this is mainly being stimulated by SOA.
EA's challenge is to make IT more cost effective, more strategic and more responsive. However, quick and effective changes are not possible today without changes to IT systems and infrastructures. The emergence of SOA, however, provides new ways for designing more agile, more responsive enterprise architectures that provide the kind of value businesses have been seeking. With these new architectures, IT can build new business capabilities faster, cheaper and in a vocabulary the business can understand.
The aim of our Enterprise Architecture Consulting is to help organisations create and execute enterprise wide strategies that deliver real business value that is tangible and measurable.
Griffiths Waite has a very practical and pragmatic standpoint to Enterprise Architecture, and whilst able to articulate the theory, our focus is on making enterprise architecture real, meaningful, valuable and deliverable in the specific context of our client’s organisation and environment.
Griffiths Waite is a contributing member of the main TOGAF workgroup and the SOA project team and provides effective leadership and advice to organisations on Enterprise Architecture Strategies and SOA roadmaps. TOGAF - The Open Group Architectural Framework is the emerging standard for Enterprise Architecture.
