Live Webinar – April 16th, 2014 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm  EDT

Duration 1 hour 1 PDU or  1 CDU 1 Category A – Free PDU

Enterprise Business Architecture is quickly evolving into a mainstream business capability.

Some would argue that it is already there particularly when 50% of the world’s top performing organizations have embraced business architecture as a strategic differentiator ranging from Government, Telco’s, Manufacturing and Financial Institutions.

However there continues to be a large population of change executives, managers and resources who regard Business Architecture as a theoretical practice.

Strategic change initiatives proliferate in business today. The speed and rate of change demands we maintain holistic oversight of all the moving parts to ensure realization of target operating models and designs.

Historically only a few strategic programs would be at play. In the last decade this number has grown to include on-shoring/off-shoring, centralization, spans of control, business transformation, vendor outsourcing, modernization, mergers/acquisitions, channel optimization, client segmentation, journeys and experience.

To facilitate strategic alignment and execution of these initiatives, firms are investing in business architecture.

Beyond Theory will focus on what are the market and internal forces at work which have been driving and will continue to drive organizations to use the models to better understand business impact, scope, execution and benefits realization.

The discussion will address the deployment and adoption challenges and look at industry standards and Blueprinting for strategic opportunities. It will provide a foundational knowledge of the business architecture framework and model types to crystalize scope, identify stakeholders, manage risk and how early analysis, through the lens of the business architecture, will influence estimating, resourcing, time, cost and quality.

Business Architecture is the link between strategy and execution.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Provide clear, rational reasons to do business Architecture.
  2. Present a foundational set of Business Architecture Models, views and uses to mitigate project and analysis risk, drive the value proposition
  3. Recommend a staged Execution Model

Live Webinar – April 15th, 2014 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm  EDT Presented by: Eclipse Project Portfolio Management Duration: 1 hour 1 PDUs Credits: Category C 1 PDU- Free PDU Resource availability is a key source of negative risk to projects. Even if your project has well-defined scope and validated activity effort estimates, if the resources you are provided are working on multiple projects and operational activities, predictability of schedule outcomes is poor. This webinar will review some options for responding to this risk from both a systemic and project-focused perspective. LESSONS LEARNED:

  1. Understand the criticality of uncertain resource availability on project outcomes.
  2. Learn which approaches for getting better knowledge of resource availability won’t work in your organization.
  3. Gain a better understanding of the pros and cons of the practices that can successfully incorporate resource availability uncertainty into project planning and tracking.

What if you could automate many tests
As an integral part of the development process?

In both agile and traditional development environments, the most common practice for automating regression tests is to script manual tests after development is done and the build is deployed.

With the Indium Sprint-Cycle Testing (SCT) approach, coupled with a powerful automation tool such as Borland Silk Portfolio, you can learn how to develop and run automated tests in parallel with developers so the regression test set is updated immediately after the build is complete.

Find out how to transform your test automation with the SCT approach:

  • Identify test cases to automate—and ones to not automate
  • Automate the tests in parallel with development
  • Estimate the effort for test script automation
  • Develop and execute automated tests during and after build process
  • Reduce automation backlog and improve regression suite coverage

NOTE: Adopters of the SCT process report 30% faster test execution times, 35% reduction in regression efforts, and 60% of defects caught earlier in the development process when using Borland Silk Portfolio.
