Enterprise Architecture Practitioners Summit – April 25-26, 2022

Overview: April 25-26, 2022

This event was made up of two key themes. Click here for the event Agenda where you will find synopses of the presentations.

The presentations, linked below for each day, are freely available to members of The Open Group and event attendees.

Day 1: The TOGAF® Standard and its Ecosystem

The TOGAF Standard is more than an open standard — it is an ecosystem which provides value through the strength and scope of its content, the broad body of knowledge in the TOGAF Library, its lage community of practitioners, and its training and certification programs. The standard provides the universal concepts of Enterprise Architecture (EA), together with established, enduring, and stable best practices to help Enterprise Architects deliver. These sessions considered the three challenges every EA team faces: how to configure their EA team; how to configure their method of developing EA; and how they document their enterprise's architecture.

Day 2: EA and Practical Use-Cases | AEA® Showcase | TOGAF® User Group

EA and Practical Use-Cases

Association of Enterprise Architects® (AEA®) Showcase

TOGAF® User Group: EA for Uncertainty Workshop

How should an Enterprise Architect plan for an unknowable changing future and avoid the situational hindsight predicament of "I wish I had thought about that!"? The pragmatic Enterprise Architect must skill themselves in thinking and planning for a future that is a moving target and is continuously changing. You will learn tools and techniques to help with this pragmatism in terms of:

  • Thinking for tomorrow: learning to think beyond stated requirements
  • Communicating with the business: building on common abstractions and learning how to develop and align your own
  • Architecting for the future perfect progressive: how do we engineer for sustainability?
