Our Director of Operations Mrs. Indu Aromal, attended the conference on Enterprise Architecture by Mr. John Zachman,the originator of the “Zachman Framework for Enterprise Architecture” held in Bangalore at the Le Meridien and organized by ICMG . The conference was basically designed for Company Owners, Directors, CXOs, Topline Managers and Enterprise Architects to share the know-how behind engineering Enterprises, managing complexity and change in an organization and translating strategies to operation.
The conference , lead by John A. Zachman, gave some excellent insights into the laws of nature that governs the behaviour of an organization and went on to establish that a well engineered enterprise with a sound architecture in place is the master key for the success of an enterprise. John A. Zachman, is the founder of the “Framework for Enterprise Architecture” which has received broad acceptance around the world as an integrative framework. His descriptive representations for Enterprises is considered as the “periodic table” for an enterprise, just like how the period table makes the base of Scientific Chemistry. Mr. Zachman is not only known for his work on Enterprise Architecture, but is also known for his early contributions to IBM’s Information Strategy methodology (Business Systems Planning) as well as to their Executive team planning techniques (Intensive Planning). The legendary Zachman is also the author of the book “The Zachman Framework for Enterprise Architecture : A Primer on Enterprise Engineering and Manufacturing” and is currently the Chief Executive Officer of his own education and consulting business, Zachman International. He is also the Chairman of the Board of Zachman Framework Associates, a worldwide consortium managing conformance to the Zachman Framework principles and Chief Executive Officer of the Zachman Institute for Framework Advancement (ZIFA), an organization that conducts seminars on Enterprise Architecture.
The conference covered various agendas such as Modern enterprise & its dependency, Defining framework for Enterprise Architecture, Enterprise objectives, Enterprise Architecture:its implementation practicalities , Architecture methodologies, Enterprise Architecture management and Guidelines for an action plan. John has given a clear insight into using his framework as the guideline for engineering an enterprise that is integrated, flexible, aligned,interoperable and extendible. InstaCarma is sure to benefit a great deal from the invaluable insights from this living legend and will be incorporating his methodology in its enterprise architecture.
