IFN663 Advanced Enterprise Architecture

Unit synopsis

This unit provides an advanced understanding of Enterprise Architecture (EA), addressing the ways in which EA is used to improve organisations through their business and IT strategy developments. You will be exposed to the principles of enterprise architecture, contrasting these with the concerns of modelling, design and solution architecture of individual systems. You will be taught the key activities of developing an EA, and how these relate to the ways in which companies undertake business and IT planning. Following from this, you will gain profficiency at developing different parts of an EA, based on The Open Group Architecture Framework (TOGAF) and state-of-the-art architecture development techniques. This will cover the capture of organisational capabilities and the different artefacts of enterprises, including business services, processes, information and resources. The EA methodology will be linked to the Blue Ocean Strategy, and students will explore different ways in which strategic planing problems can be translated into EA approaches.
