Maximize Organizational Success with Precision Guided Enterprise Architecture

Webinar – Recorded | Aug. 14, 2014

Successful transformation initiatives are driven by Business Architecture. The Business Architect plays a key role in bringing all of the portfolio components together and consistently reinforcing senior management's voice throughout the ADM lifecycle.

Establishing context serves as the basis for strategic project portfolio definition and integrated execution. This approach mitigates the risk of executing projects in isolation without considering the needs of the entire portfolio as a whole. This session will boost your knowledge of these concepts and help you and your team to achieve the best possible outcomes for your organization.

As part of his first question, he described a strategy report that his group is producing. The audience for this strategy report considers ITIL important to the future of their business, and so he must describe which ITIL processes his data center operations group works most closely with.

Everyday Services and Technology

Article | Aug. 01, 2012

In the last two posts I discussed aspects of services in the context of some landscaping work that I’m having done. This is clearly what many people would call a “non-IT example.” I often use similar examples in my classes.
