About the Instructor

My name is Roger Evernden. I’ve been an enterprise architect since 1984, specializing in the highly practical use of EA to manage organizational transformation. I work as advisor, mentor, and coach on EA initiatives, lead training workshops, and write regularly about strategy and architecture.

I provide a unique combination of training and tools to help architects and their teams throughout an EA program and at each capability level. These online training modules provide a thorough grounding of all key techniques, with practical examples, exercises, and demonstrations.

As architect of the Information FrameWork (IFW), I helped pioneer many contemporary EA techniques, including the use of industry reference models, business capability analysis, and component-based building blocks.

My work has been the basis for more than 400 business and IT architecture initiatives worldwide. I write extensively about enterprise architecture and TOGAF®, and my articles have appeared in major publications and books, including the seminal article on IFW in IBM's Systems Journal.

I am author of two books about EA: Enterprise Architecture — The Eight Fundamental Factors and 101 Lessons from Enterprise Architecture.

I work as an independent consultant, and as a Senior Consultant with Cutter Consortium's Business & Enterprise Architecture practice.

Since 1995, Vesta Corporation has been a pioneer in processing fully guaranteed card-not-present (CNP) payment transactions for global telecoms. They have steadily expanded their leadership, providing multi-channel payment solutions for industry leaders such as AT&T, T-Mobile, Vodafone, Telcel, and China Unicom, and broadening their solutions to support all merchants selling goods and services.

In 2015 Vesta established an EA practice. The architects trained to become TOGAF 9.1 certified, but wanted a primer or boot camp to bring the entire team up to speed to be more aligned with EA disciplines. They embarked on an innovative combination of online training and webinars in a nine-month program to build the capabilities and confidence of the entire team.
