Hi [[ session.user.profile.firstName ]]

Alfabet Enterprise Architecture - An EA Approach to Technology Business Mgmt.

Enterprise Architecture as a practice is well understood by IT teams due to well-understood categorization models for tracking and managing assets. IT Finance Management was driven by accounting standards that we often poorly aligned to IT assets. Now, TBM is bringing a complete methodology to both Business and IT groups within a single enterprise. Learn how Business groups benefit from the foundations of EA, and how IT groups can better understand and apply financial cost account across all assets.

What viewers will learn by attending this program include:
• How to leverage the TBM Taxonomy to consistently record costs by Cost Pools and IT Towers
• See why CIO’s need this framework to deliver status of IT costs and budgets
• Learn to apply the cost structures to key assets and projects
• Avoid incorrect reporting and improve visualizations by integrating Alfabet with your General Ledger using the TBM methodology

However, the way we connect our supply chain systems together, within the enterprise and across the supply chain, still primarily remains unchanged. Today we will look at how we got there, what is holding us back, and what are some key enablers to address this quickly by leveraging our existing systems. Lastly, we will look at a few different success stories.
  • How SaaS is Taking Shape at Veterans Affairs Recorded: Sep 28 2021 42 mins
    Chris Borneman, Drew Myklegard
    As agencies increasingly migrate operations to the cloud and look to move their computing off-prem, software-as-a-service (SaaS) solutions are becoming more popular because of their benefits in speed and scalability.

  • Aligning Enterprise Architecture with Financial Management Recorded: Sep 23 2021 49 mins
    Mark Steinbacher, Senior Solutions Architect, and Karan Khurana, Senior Product Manager
    In most organizations, you will often find many Management Disciplines all working diligently to oversee different aspects of the enterprise. But they often operate in a vacuum, as they are hobbled by lack of a robust integration mechanism for streamlining data sharing across their boundaries. Organizations need platforms that are “architected to integrate” to enable data-driven decision-making that leverages information across multiple disciplines.

    In this webinar originally hosted by Digital Government Institute (DGI) and sponsored by Software AG Government Solutions, we look into one of the most critical collaborations for informed decision-making: the partnership between Financial Management and Enterprise Architecture (EA) Management, facilitated by the integration between Apptio, a leading Financial Management platform, and Alfabet, the leading EA platform.

    Some of the highlights that will be discussed include:

    • Efficiencies achieved through Collaborative Enterprise Management (CEM)
    • Value of up-to-date for complete impact analysis and cost control & investment decisions
    • Transparent interoperability between Apptio and Alfabet
    • The open and scalable nature of the CEM framework

  • Incorporate your Mainframe Apps to Low Code/No Code Platforms Recorded: Aug 18 2021 31 mins
    Bob Jeffcott, Principal Systems Engineer, Software AG Government Solutions
    Low code/no code platforms like Salesforce, Service Now, etc. are all the rage in the IT world. They enable deployment of new applications quickly and easily. But key functionality and data still reside in your legacy applications.

  • Data Strategy Success through EA Collaboration Recorded: Jul 8 2021 31 mins
    Mark Steinbacher, Senior Solutions Architect at Software AG Government Solutions
    Join our recording from the 2021 Federal Data Strategy Conference hosted by Digital Government Institute (DGI) with Software AG Government Solutions’ Mark Steinbacher and you will see how collaborating with EA significantly increases the likelihood of a successful Data Strategy realization.

    Organizations across industries and the government have recognized that information is the “life-blood” of a successful enterprise and are mobilizing to truly treat data as an asset to ensure that success. Most organizations begin by defining a Data Strategy (DS) and then initiating organizational and operational change efforts to change the behavior toward their data. This is often where challenges surface due to not accounting for the myriad perspectives and dimensions that make up the complex enterprise eco-system. This is where Enterprise Architecture (EA) can help.

    Some highlights of the webinar include:
    • The role and purpose of a Data Strategy
    • How a Data Strategy aligns to the EA mission
    • How collaborating with EA yields benefits
    • How NOT collaborating with EA could result in higher costs and lower realization success
  • How to Integrate your Mainframe Applications Recorded: Jun 23 2021 33 mins
    Bob Jeffcott, Principal Systems Engineer, Software AG Government Solutions

  • Start asking the Right Questions from your EA Solution Recorded: Jun 17 2021 43 mins
    Jeff Chancellor, Principal Systems Engineer at Software AG Government Solutions
    Join our replay from the 2021 EA Conference hosted by Digital Government Institute (DGI) with Software AG Government Solutions’ Jeff Chancellor and you will learn how to ask the right questions to get the best value from your EA Solution.

    Many EA solutions have been developed over the years, and it may surprise you that many are still following the approach of loading data and then generating a flurry of reports, often only a few columns different or the sorting parameters different. This just promotes what can be called “report sprawl.”

    Modern EA tools need to be data driven, and using strategic questions enables executives and planning teams helps guide the data collection activities by understanding what data is required to answer the questions. Being data driven is a key differentiator that helps elevate successful EA teams because they anticipate the questions, or even better, they have the questions built into their EA tool. In a survey of over 300 executives, 45 questions were the most common across the survey participants, and are now part of an EA Accelerator configuration from Software AG Government Solutions. Not only do these questions present the right answers, it support drill-down into the details to see the data that answers the questions. Using a layered construct enables organizations to develop their own questions and surface them to the appropriate users. This enables easier accessibility for executives to ask their questions from the platform rather than people, and they get the immediate benefit and insight to make better decisions for the future.

  • Application Rationalization: What to do when you don’t know what to do Recorded: Mar 3 2021 36 mins
    Robert Crawford, Former Deputy CIO, IRS & Jeff Chancellor, Principal Systems Engineer, Software AG Government Solutions
    Rationalizing an application portfolio is no longer the realm of elite organizations and it can no longer only be driven by cost conscious CIO’s. The survivability of the enterprise rests in its ability to respond with certainty and agility in a constantly churning environment. Rationalizing your application estate does result in streamlined IT processes and reduced costs. The secret value unleashed in a well-executed application rationalization program is better measured in the elevated conversations it causes between the business and IT organizations, and in its ability to drive radical transformation. A little disruption can go a long way!
