Enterprise Architecture Group



Who we are?

Enterprise Architecture is a growing discipline in the UK Higher and Further Education sectors.

The Enterprise Architecture Group provides an active discussion forum for UCISA members with over 300 subscribers from over 100 different Universities.

The EA 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 Group 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 Group 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 Group regularly hosts webinars where examples of interesting work and good practice are be shared.
