The New2EA Working Group is open to Itana Community Group members who are interesting in launching or relaunching an EA practice as well as those already running mature practices. Itana recognizes that the EA role is inclusive of multiple architecture disciplines.

  • Business architecture -- Business architects, business stakeholders, business leaders, etc.

  • Information architecture --  Information architects, data stewards, business and technical consumers, et.

  • Technical architecture -- Technical architects, technical project managers and teams, etc.
