Enterprise Architecture Management (EAM) Overview

Course Description

EAM Willkommen FlipchartDigital transformation is changing the foundation of companies, from the business model and service portfolio to changes in company-wide processes, organizational structures and technologies. Enterprise Architecture Management (EAM) helps you master the complexity of such a transformation. This seminar offers an overview of EAM, from introduction of EAM in the company to its implementation.

EAM integrates all the essential components of a company and creates transparency about their interrelationships, costs, benefits and risks. With this information, architects and managers are able to make informed decisions and plan and implement major transformation initiatives.

This seminar provides you with the fundamental knowledge to help you align business and IT initiatives with the corporate strategy.

  • Terms and concepts
