For the 2015-2016 year, based on its member survey, the ITANA Steering Committee has identified the following tracks as broad topics for sessions through the year:



Signature-Ready EA

Coming out of our annual F2F meeting, we’ll continue the theme of Signature-Ready EA throughout the year.

Enterprise architecture (EA) needs to develop signature-ready recommendations. The shift is toward actionable artifacts that both business and technology can act from. What are they, how do you build them, why now, and what is different in your practice?

Practice of Architecture

What do architects do, and how do they do it? How do architects get started, and what organizational changes are involved?
Example agendas:

  • Starting an Enterprise Architecture Practice
  • Tools for Enterprise Analysis: PACE, TIME, etc.
  • Change Management as an Architect
  • Architects as Leaders Throughout the Organization

Business Domains

Architectural perspectives on higher ed business domains, with perspectives such as domain-wide business capability mapping, data architecture, trends, etc.


  • Teaching and Learning
  • Research
  • Student Services
  • Academic Advising

Case Studies

Case studies on successful integration or solution implementations showcasing an enterprise architecture approach.
