FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Montreal, Quebec, Canada, June 10, 2015 — Trisotech (http://www.trisotech.com) announced today that they have formed a strategic partnership with FEAC™ Institute, the premier Education and Certification Institution for Enterprise Architects headquartered in Monument, Colorado.
“Tools, such as Trisotech’s Discovery Accelerator and Insight Analyzer help FEAC students more quickly turn their organizational knowledge into practical insight for actionable results,” says Cort Coghill, Director of Education Operations at The FEAC Institute. “FEAC recognizes Enterprise Architecture represents a powerful approach for capturing insight about the connectivity that exists within an organization. Knowing how people (including customers), process and products are inter-related is a key to harnessing the innovation within an enterprise. The FEAC Institute workshops are short 1-3 day hands on sessions that educate EA practitioners how to utilize frameworks, modeling notations, and software tools, etc. to develop actionable results. FEAC is happy to partner with Trisotech in using their Digital Enterprise Suite to support our hands on workshops.”
“We are very proud to be associated with FEAC Institute. They set the bar for EA Certification,” says Trisotech CSO, George Barlow. “ FEAC provides both hands on courses and certification programs for Enterprise Architects and they also offer Green Belt and Black Belt certification programs.
“Digital technologies including mobile, social and cloud are having a profound impact on how organizations must compete to do business in today’s global economy,” says Barlow. “Enterprise Architecture practices are undergoing a fundamental change as organizations morph to Digital Enterprises. Digital initiatives in organizations are often being led by interactive marketing personnel who are more interested in Agile development and DevOps techniques than enterprise architecture. Agile development methods often skip enterprise architecture development believing that architectures will resolve with sprint iterations. This kind of ‘evolved’ architecture usually results in significant technical debt that requires frequent and expensive refactoring to resolve. It is better to sprint with a well thought out cross-organization architecture in place from the beginning.
“Too often Enterprise Architects are buried in the IT department focused on compliance and technology issues and not out front leading the charge for improved business outcomes and agility,” continues Barlow. “Business Architecture and DevOps are bypassing EA in slow-to-adapt organizations. Trisotech’s Digital Enterprise Suite is a tool that helps Enterprise Architects focus more on organizational transformation from the business needs perspective. Our Digital Enterprise Suite provides a set of technologies that enable non-technical business people, architects and analysts to collaboratively participate in both enterprise and business architecture discovery, modeling and process improvement. We are helping Enterprise Architects reestablish their relevance in the age of digital transformation.”
The FEAC™ Institute, in partnership with the California State University at East Bay, prides itself on being the premier Education and Certification Institution for Enterprise Architects. Since opening in 2002, the FEAC™ Institute has graduated over 1400 Certified Enterprise Architects (CEAs) and trained over 1500 workshop and TOGAF 8 and 9 attendees, worldwide. The program features the best thought leaders and instructors in the field of enterprise architecture, including John A. Zachman, the creator of the Zachman Framework™, considered the father of Enterprise Architecture and author of numerous EA publications. The FEAC™ Institute ’s flagship education and certifications in the Zachman Framework™, Federated EA Framework (FEAF), and Department of Defense Architecture Framework (DoDAF) are the industry standard. FEAC™ also offers Green belt certificates and Black Belt certification programs, 3 day Seminars or 5 day workshop bootcamps, and customized enterprise architecture training and certification programs tailored to civilian government, DoD, or the commercial sectors. They periodically offer additional new short programs on related EA topics, such as, Capital Planning and Portfolio Management, Enterprise Modeling, Data Architecture as well as the Federal Collaborative Planning Methodology (CPM).
Zachman International® is the education and consulting company founded by John A. Zachman, author of the Zachman Framework™.
