6 Hour Virtual Seminar on Business Architecture Webinar By EITAGlobal
9/11/2014 8:00 AM - 11:00 AM
Online seminar Fremont, California United States
Event Listing
Summary:

Overview: This workshop provides participants with a toolset for developing a business architecture that goes well beyond the technology-oriented approaches typically employed by EA. Instead participants are shown how to apply a 5-level framework for modeling any organization, from the top down to the user and enabling technology.

This multi-layered approach makes visible all of the key processing sub-systems and shows how critical business drivers, such as profitability, cost, and quality can be linked to drive performance at all levels. This course expounds on the core concepts described in the book Rediscovering Value: Leading the 3-D Enterprise to Sustainable Success, co-authored by the presenter

Why should you attend: Enterprise Architecture (EA) is an entire discipline within IT, devoted to defining the major components of organizations to which technology is a supporting set of products and services. But EA experts are confused and disagreed about what an enterprise architecture is, how to depict one, and what purpose it serves in guiding technology development.

There is no one model or approach to EA. The Zachman Framework has been referenced again and again in numerous models but it’s never clear what the relationship is to a given EA and Zachman’s original work, nor is there any reason to consider the Zachman model to be correct or superior to anything else. EA is a discipline without any clear standards.

Areas Covered in the Session:

Distinguish between levels of business architecture

Apply a hierarchical structure to the depiction of business processing sub-systems and their linkages between business objectives and work objectives

Identify and practice with modeling tools proven to be most effective for each level of a business architecture

Distinguish between approaches to work system boundary setting that do and don’t support an effective business architecture model

Who Will Benefit:

Business architects

BPM practitioners

Enterprise Architects

Business process modelers

Measurement specialists

Business Glossary First step to Data Governance Success Webinar By EITAGlobal
9/17/2014 10:00 AM - 1:00 PM
Online seminar Fremont, California United States
Event Listing
Summary:

Overview: Often organizations are challenged in selecting the first enterprise wide implementation that the Data Governance (DG) program should address. A Business Glossary is a great first initiative as well as one that provides significant value to the enterprise.

A Business Glossary is the tool for exposing authoritative content from DG initiatives and used to communicate understanding and clarity across the enterprise. A business glossary can connect workers across the enterprise to critical business information they can trust, helping to eliminate misunderstandings that cause lost time, lost opportunities and lost revenue. Creating great definitions and business term names will aid significantly in enabling search capabilities. The Business Glossary should be an early deliverable from your DG program and mature to include the logical and physical data constructs as a valuable component to drive DG maturity and value.

This seminar will be helpful for data management and Governance professionals that have been challenged with any of the following issues:

How to organize the business glossary program for quick wins as well as position for a maturing DG program

Business Intelligence, BPM and KPI ambiguity

Legal and compliance regulations are driving new projects that are not clearly defined (such as TART)

Enterprise or international projects like CDI/MDM that must address terminology and semantic differences across the enterprise

Why should you Attend: Often organizations are challenged in selecting the first enterprise wide implementation that the Data Governance (DG) program should address. A Business Glossary is a great first initiative as well as one that provides significant value to the enterprise. A Business Glossary activity, when addresses as data sprints, can provide the DG program with effective and quick success, as well as great visibility for the program.

Good Governance processes are critical for many enterprises that are:

Unclear how to achieve quick results from Data Governance

Organized geographically introducing global enterprise semantic differences

Challenged by complexity of terminology having many glossaries

Mergers and Acquisitions have introduce semantic differences across the enterprise

Areas Covered in the Session:

Methods for establishing the Business Glossary, standards and best practices

How to leverage your existing Governance team and processes

How to create structured definition standards and name business terms

Techniques to get your Glossary populated and used

Who Will Benefit:

CDO and Director of Data Governance

Data Stewards

Data Governance Analysts and Data Governance team members

Data Architects

Dynamic APIs and Dynamic Schemas The Secrets of Building Inherently Flexible Software
9/23/2014 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM
Online seminar Fremont, California United States
Event Listing
Summary:

Overview: The central technical challenge for Agile Architecture is how to achieve functionality and performance without having to trade off flexibility. The context for these central patterns of Agile Architecture is the concept of architecting at a dynamic level of abstraction above the logical level of contracted APIs and data schemas.

At this dynamic level, there are the central patterns that are essential to resolving the fundamental compromise of distributed computing:

Dynamic Coupling. Tightly coupled interfaces require detailed knowledge of both sides of a distributed computing interaction, and any change on one side might break the other. Contracted interfaces introduce loose coupling, but at the expense of a static interface. With dynamic coupling, interface differences are resolved dynamically at run time.

Dynamic Schemas. Neither the WSDL files that specify Web Services, nor the URIs, HTTP verbs, and Internet Media Types that specify RESTful APIs adequately contract the message semantics for any interaction. Dynamic schemas abstract all semantic metadata in a consistent way, relying once again upon the integration engine to resolve these dynamic schemas for each interaction at run time.

Extreme Late Binding. SOA registries ended up doing little more than resolving endpoint references at run time, similar to the way DNS resolves domain names - in other words, they provided late binding. Such late binding adds some flexibility to an interaction, but typically at the expense of performance. Today, however, dynamic coupling and dynamic schemas enable any client to discover at run time all the metadata it requires to interact with any endpoint, without sacrificing performance - what we call extreme late binding.

Put these architectural principles together and you have an approach for building inherently flexible software, even in a complicated distributed computing environment.

Why should you attend: The central challenge of distributed computing is how to get your various distributed bits to communicate with each other properly. Since those distributed components are typically heterogeneous, we must somehow come up with a common means of establishing interaction among components everybody can agree on. Yet, once we do that, we've necessarily compromised on flexibility, because changing how our components interact is a difficult, complex endeavor. This problem pervades the entire history of APIs, from remote procedure calls to Web Services to RESTful APIs and everything in between. We must somehow contract interfaces in order to abstract the underlying functionality, yet the very act of introducing such contracts is a compromise, since the interface itself now lacks flexibility.

Review of Web Services and RESTful APIs

Limitations of contracted interfaces

Challenges of document style services

Challenges of custom media types

Meta, Dynamic, and Logical abstractions

Data, metadata, and code at the Meta level
