Enterprise Architecture in Shoprite: Crafting architecture governance into IT business processes

Jean Buys
Enterprise Architect, Shoprite Holdings

The TOGAF ADM is a generic method for architecture development and TOGAF specifically recommends that the ADM should be tailored to suite the specific needs of an organization. This presentation provides a walkthrough of the architecture processes and architecture governance authorities in the Shoprite Group of Companies. It shows how the architecture processes are integrated into the strategic and operational IT processes of the organization. A live demo of the process models in the EA repository is provided.
