Active Working Groups

We welcome your participation in our current working groups!

Working groups should review the Charge to Working Groups as they develop their charter and periodically throughout their lifecycle. The Charge to Working Groups helps a working group ensure it is focused on the core mission of ITANA and that it helps develop and deliver our capabilities.

API / Governance Working Group

This working group is arranging for topical discussion in the broad domain of SOA and APIs. The goal is to bring together practitioners in common areas of expressed interest and provide a forum for sharing resources. Check out the Itana Events page for day/times for the API Calls.

Itana Book Club

March 2017: The Itana book club's next book is "The Phoenix Project" by Gene Kim, Kevin Behr, and George Spafford. Check out the Itana Events  page for day/times for the Book Club calls.

Enterprise Architecture Maturity Model in Higher Education
(EAMM-edu) Working Group

The EAMM-edu working group will delineate a pathway for Enterprise Architecture practices in higher education from start-up through full maturity.  This EAMM-edu will be predicated on existing industry frameworks and will serve as both a guide and assessment tool for practitioners and University leaders.  The working group will also develop an Applied Practices Guide to address the required skills, methods and readiness indicators anticipated throughout the various stages of maturation.

Check out the Itana Events page for day/times for the EAMM-edu Working Group call schedule.

Other Active Groups

Face2Face Planning Committee

Planning is underway for ITANA's next Face2Face meeting.

Currently Inactive Groups

These groups are not currently active but their wiki sites contain relevant content.

Learning Working Group

The aim of the ITANA Reference Architecture for Learning is to assemble a set of artifacts that provide an architectural description of the learning ecosystem. This is an area where there is huge technology churn. Consequently, there is a temptation to grasp at technology solutions without a clear roadmap of the entire problem space. This project is designed to provide such a roadmap.

Starting an Enterprise Architecture Practice Working Group

This working group has seeded content to assist institutions of higher education in starting an EA Program. 

Leading as an Architect Peer-Group

Architects of all stripes are in a leadership position whether you know it or not.  The real goal of an architect is to influence decision makers and set strategy.  This peer-group is focused on discussing the skills of leadership that an architect should develop, successes and failures, ways to engage with campus partners, and personal development plans.

New to Higher Education Peer-Group

Are you new to Higher Education? Did you just come from a business with a strong top-down command and control structure and you are wondering "how do you get anything done?" This peer-group is for you.
