  10. Selling EA & Governance • Speak the language of the business • Or something as close as you can get • It’s all about value • The business has to see that this will promote better IS decision-making to support the business better • Show them pictures • Not like I’ve been doing in this presentation… • EA development will provide the pictures • See JISC SOA animation

  11. Selling EA & Governance • Business value: • Business wants to know how to analyse staffing requirements in light of increasing self-service • ‘As Is’ Architecture – self-service capability mapped to business processes as of now • ‘To Be’ Architecture – self-service capability mapped to business processes in light of move to Campus Solutions • Giving a visual representation that addresses the business problem
