A new initiative to promote professionalism in the fast-developing disciplines of enterprise architecture and systems engineering has been launched by the National Computing Centre.
The EA-SE Programme, based on a series of 10 one-day workshops, will be run in association with the Institution of Engineering and Technology.
Michael Gough, NCC’s chief executive said: “The continuing convergence in information and communications technologies is driving the rapid development of enterprise architecture and systems engineering as an essential business capability. This programme will re-define these disciplines for today’s business environment.”
Robin McGill, chief executive of the Institution of Engineering and Technology, said: “Our aim is to identify and share the emerging best practices in this rapidly growing sector and to raise awareness of the vital role fulfilled by enterprise architecture and systems engineering professionals around the world.”
The programme aims to develop an approach to building in-house capability and capacity in enterprise architecture and systems engineering with a career path from technician to chief technical officer. It will also look at the CTO’s leadership role.
The initiative also seeks to develop a modern and common language for IT asset management, a customer-driven understanding of legacy exploitation, rejuvenation and renewal and a compliance-driven understanding of security and risk management.
The programme is designed to give IT and communications professionals an opportunity to share experience and learn from experts and peers.
It has been endorsed by the British Computer Society, trade association, Intellect and the sector skills council e-skills UK.
