MEGA, an industry leader in business and enterprise architecture, will present the second MEGA Byte series of 20-minute mini-webinars.

  • MEGA Byte 5, May 29: Exploring the Principles of Business Architecture Maturity
  • MEGA Byte 6, June 26: Turning Change into a Strategic Opportunity Using Business Architecture

MEGA Byte 4, on business capability maps, will show attendees how to build a community of architects, business analysts and executives across the company in a way that ensures that IT and business are supporting corporate strategy and providing essential decision making tools. It will demonstrate how to use the business capability landscape to support business transformation and understand the impact of potential risks.

MEGA Byte 5, on business architecture maturity, will explore the guidelines and steps in A Guide to the Business Architecture Body of Knowledge™ (BIZBOK™) and show how they can help companies achieve the next level of maturity in business architecture in a way that provides business value. The discussion will also cover the importance of establishing an appropriate governance structure early in the business architecture maturity cycle.

MEGA Byte 6, on change as a strategic opportunity, will show how business architecture can be used to assess the potential impacts of change and how to build a business capability map and assign the right skills and competencies to support successful business transformation.
