Did you know that you can apply enterprise architecture techniques to help reduce complexity often associated with risk management and compliance? Do you know how to use architecture as a means of governance, assurance, and management of risk, compliance, and operational performance?
Enterprise architecture (EA) and governance, risk & compliance (GRC) are disciplines, philosophies and capabilities that help to address corporate objectives to ensure safe, profitable, and stable operations that can easily adapt to expected and unexpected changes.
EA has its origin in IT architecture and has been playing a role in IT governance for some time. With the ascent of business architecture as an EA discipline, EA reaches beyond IT and now maintains a holistic view of an organization’s operations in alignment with the integration of GRC considerations.
GRC has its origin in ensuring a business, and the people within its extended enterprise ecosystem, are sufficiently equipped to: operate within voluntary and involuntary boundaries, identify and navigate obstacles and uncertainty, and achieve breakthrough results beyond performance barriers of the past.
EA and GRC share common goals and aid business leaders in achieving strategic objectives. When properly executed, these disciplines together enhance an organization’s capabilities to measurably create, grow, uncover and safeguard shareholder value.
You will learn:
- The similarities in how EA and GRC consider the enterprise
- How EA techniques can reduce the complexity sometimes associated with GRC
- How enterprise architecture models can support GRC activities
- The role EA and GRC play together in breaking down silos
