The Architectures Center of Excellence, the Enterprise Architecture Center of Excellence (EACOE, and its predecessor/parallel organizations), and the Business Architecture Center of Excellence (BACOE, and its predecessor/parallel organizations) have invested over 30 years in developing a robust body of knowledge for executing architecture and model driven business and technology planning, business process engineering, and application development. These techniques, methodologies, and processes are recognized as best practices, and are used globally. While nearly all enterprises build information systems, the end objective is not just an information system, but a flexible, changeable, and reusable asset that will meet current and future business needs. Few organizations today use model driven approaches that truly separates Architecture (Engineering) from Implementation (Manufacturing). Throughout recorded history, as complexity increases, separating Architecture from Implementation becomes an imperative. These experiences can now be provided through our course of study.
As human beings, we are naturally “visually” oriented. We cannot “see” the essence of a problem or solution in one thousand pages of text. As importantly, one representation that suits both business personnel, and technology personnel is not possible in disciplines outside of Enterprise Architecture and Business Architecture,
The Architectures Center of Excellence, EACOE and BACOE, are the leading practitioner-based associations for the Enterprise and Business Architecture professions. We set professional standards, conduct research, provide information, and promote professional and career development. We offer practice-based certification, professional networking, and knowledge development opportunities.
