Enterprise architectures and associated governance frameworks have now become key issues for small through to large organisations to manage the growing volume of internal and external information resources. In this unit you will learn about the key enterprise architecture components needed to manage these information resources, and the importance of aligning enterprise architectures with organisational strategy and policies. Enterprise architectures must also support the governance of information resources. Students will learn about governance frameworks (e.g. COBIT, ITIL) which address issues such as complying with consumer data protection principles, managing enterprise information security, and managing external information resource providers.
