Who we are?
Enterprise Architecture is a growing discipline in the UK Higher and Further Education sectors.
The Enterprise Architecture Community of Practice (EA CoP) provides an active discussion forum for ucisa members with around 250 subscribers from over 100 different Universities.
The EA CoP group brings together people with an interest in setting a vision, adopting, developing and disseminating best practices and awareness of Enterprise Architecture and how it is evolving to meet the needs of the UK HE & FE sector.
What we do?
The Enterprise Architecture Community of Practice provides an opportunity for collaboration and support across the UK HE Enterprise Architecture community through the sharing of knowledge, experience, case studies and templates. The EA CoP seeks to promote the value of enterprise architecture, encourage it to mature within the UK HE & FE sector and identify new opportunities for innovation.
As well as an active discussion forum, the EA CoP regularly hosts webinars where examples of interesting work and good practice are be shared.
The EA CoP also maintains and seeks to promote, develop and share reference architecture models such as the ucisa UK HE Capability Model.
The ucisa EA CoP actively welcomes new members. The primary discussion channel is through the community discussion forum. You can join this by registering at jiscmail.ac.uk and subscribing to the UCISA-EA@jiscmail.ac.uk mailing list.
In addition members can request access via email@example.com to a Microsoft Teams Group for the ucisa EA Community.
If you use Twitter and want to Tweet about the CoP or join in community discussions, you can use the hashtag #ucisaea.
