BT to present at EA Summit in Singapore
August 01, 2008
Mark Mamone from BT Global Services will deliver a presentation titled "USING EA TO PROVIDE AN ACTIONABLE ARCHITECTURE FOR MAJOR UK GOVERNMENT PROGRAMMES. THE BT PERSPECTIVE".
Using EA to provide an Actionable Architecture for UK Major Government Programmes. The BT perspective.
Enterprise Architecture is often misunderstood, indeed, it’s often not understood at all, especially by the wider business community! So, why is it important? What role does it play in BT, within wider UK Government, and what business value does it provide? In this presentation, Mark Mamone, Executive Network CTO for BT's Major Programmes Practice and CTO for its Department for Works and Pensions (DWP) Programme, takes you through the approach that his Technology Office has taken and the challenges faced in delivering one of the largest Hosted Voice Platforms of its type in the world, against a federated supplier model and against the demands that the rapidly changing convergence market places upon us. Mark will provide an insight into how the challenges were approached and solved, at scale, and with demonstrable success.
- We begin by looking at the EA journey at BT, what EA means within the context of BT and how it's used to good effect.
- We take a look at the frameworks adopted, tools used (including ABACUS from Avolution) and how capability is ensured. In understanding how to use EA to provide an Actionable Architecture for Major UK Government programmes, we get a glimpse into how EA refers to UK government and what interactions UK government and its departments have around EA.
- We begin to see the distinction between an actionable versus a static view of architecture. Necessarily, we also delve into the business drivers behind this initiative and what it means to those at the CFO, CEO and COO level.
- We examine how to bridge the link between ‘business people’ and bringing IS/IT into the business domain more fully, taking into account the Strategic Objectives, the Drivers and Outcomes expected.
- The EA model is reviewed in terms of its role in the business and the tools used.
- We take a look at the various frameworks considered, why they were chosen and how they have made the fit.
- Lastly, we look at key architecture checkpoints - how EA fits in with the Engineering Process including Lifecycle and Quality Gates.
