Ausitn, TX (PRWEB) August 9, 2007
- Capella University, an accredited online college based in Minneapolis, has licensed several articles from Architecture & Governance Magazine (A&G) to educate Enterprise Architecture (EA) students on the business drivers effecting EA.
- Capella University's use of A&G articles on business-driven IT support findings from a recent survey that show EA has become an important tool for enterprise planning. More than half of the 289 IT and EA professionals surveyed cited using EA for business growth and innovation -- activity that is increasingly attracting attention from the executive team.
- Enterprise Architecture is the practice discovering business processes and technology and their relationships, then creating an actionable plan for transforming the organization to match business goals.
- Fortune 500 companies such as Warner Bros., Boeing and AMD are using EA tools and practices to find and consolidate archaic, redundant and/or unnecessary systems and processes. The result for these organizations is an up-to-date -- and agile - inventory of people, technology and processes and the important linkages between them that can be easily maneuvered for business transformation planning.
"EA has evolved from drawing pictures and modeling IT landscapes into a business driven approach for mapping successful transformations such as new lines of business or acquisition," said George Paras, Editor-in-Chief of Architecture & Governance Magazine. "It's great to see accredited universities such as Capella recognize this change and adjust their coursework accordingly."
