How to Achieve Real EA Benefits Through a Virtual EA Team
It is not always easy to justify the cost of having a dedicated EA practice within an organisation since the benefits are sometimes difficult to justify to a management group that is focused on finding the next silver bullet. This presentation will walk through an "EA lite" approach that is based on TOGAF. It will demonstrate how to assemble a virtual EA team from within the ICT organisation and how to integrate and direct their activities in such a manner that there is greater synergy and alignment with organisational objectives when executing  the business strategy. The approach will be explained based on a practical case study within the public sector.
