Tonex makes $6.7 million donation to EA Center

The Center for Enterprise Architecture (EA) at Penn State’s College of Information Sciences and Technology (IST) has received a donation valued at $6.7 million from Tonex, a company that provides training and consulting services to a wide variety of industries. The donations will support curricular development in the field of enterprise architecture at IST.

“We thank Tonex for this generous donation. Donations of this type add to our ever growing pool of software, hardware and course content resources. This unique collection of resources will help ensure that our programs remain on the leading edge,” said Dr. Brian Cameron, executive director of the Center for Enterprise Architecture.

Tonex provides instructor-led, hands-on, customized Enterprise Architecture training and certification courses and certificate programs for professionals and managers in business and government organizations.

Enterprise architecture, Cameron said, is the process of translating business’ vision and strategy into effective operational planning. By integrating the various dimensions of an organization, an enterprise architect takes a company’s business strategy and defines an information technology system to support that strategy.

Some of the Enterprise Architecture Training Objectives:

  • How to create an integrated and comprehensive departmental process for EA;
  • Reduce redundancies in these separate approaches;
  • Map to the Enterprise Architecture efforts of your organization
  • How EA ca be developed to a detail level that ensures the efficient management of Department IT resources,
  • What Interior Enterprise Architecture is; A New Approach
  • How to refocus and align with the overall Enterprise Architecture (EA) Reference Models
  • More about Performance, Business, Data, Service and Technology Reference Model related to Enterprise Architecture (EA) frameworks
  • How to build a Business Architecture Team (BAT)
  • How to work with Business layers of Architecture (e.g., Performance and Business Reference Models)
  • How to build a Technical Architecture Team (TAT)
  • How to work with Technology Layers of Architecture (e.g., Technology Reference Model, etc.)
  • Incorporating Existing Business Area  artifacts into unified Architecture
  • Steps towards establishing EA governance
  • How to ensure IT investments adhere to the EA.
  • More about poor modernization blueprints: Few enterprises had a business-driven enterprise architectures, a roadmap that showed what IT investments will be used to better improve performance
  • ore about Paving Cowpaths: Enterprises automated management problems, instead of leveraging e-business to fix them
  • Redundant Buying: Multiple agencies bought the same item, instead of driving economies of scale or creating one-stop points of service
  • Program Management: Few delivered on time, on budget
  • Islands of Automation: customers have to deal with multiple segments to get service, instead of going to a single point of service website or call center
  • Poor Cyber Security: IT security is seen as an IT or funding issue, instead of agency management issue
  • Identify common functions, interdependencies, interrelationships, and evaluate barriers to information sharing
  • Implement in a way that addresses both the opportunities and risks of a “networked” environment
  • Leverage technologies to achieve benefits of interoperability while protecting societal values of privacy and intellectual property rights, etc.
