BIL-T  – Jason Baragry, Showing the value of your business-oriented Enterprise Architecture team

Enterprise architecture teams struggle to quantify the benefits they provide to their organizations. They also struggle to build a business case to either establish, expand, or maintain their teams. Indeed, showing the value of EA was identified as one of the top challenges in a recent Chief Architect Forum session. We also see it in our own practice in Ardoq. For instance, last year we surveyed over 100 enterprise architects (EAs) about their biggest mistakes and by far the top answer was the failure to align EA initiatives to business goals. This presentation looks at how EA teams can focus on business outcomes and quantify their efforts in terms that will bridge the communication gap between them and the business side of their organizations.
