Printable PDF Version



With the rapid pace of change today, the need for transformation from today's inflexible business environment to an agile enterprise that can change direction rapidly has never been greater. Yet the structures, processes and systems that we have today are inflexible: they are incapable of rapid change. Business methods for Balanced Scorecard, Governance Analysis and Business Transformation Enablement are needed that support rapid business change – with systems that are directly aligned so they also change in lock-step. This is both a business problem and a computer problem. It needs strategic direction from senior management and strategic planners, with these directions then translated into rapid action by your business experts working with your IT experts.

“Clive has developed a way to integrate the semantic models with the primitive process models.

Clive Finkelstein is now retired. He was an internationally renowned consultant and instructor, and completed projects for Defense, Government and Commercial organizations throughout the world and in most industries. Many projects have involved the Zachman Framework for Enterprise Architecture, using the latest methods and technologies for rapid delivery of priority areas into implementation. These methods use Enterprise Engineering for rapid definition of Enterprise Architecture. His technology focus addresses Enterprise Integration technologies using XML, Enterprise Application Integration (EAI), Enterprise Portals, Web Services and Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) for Business Process Management (BPM) using XML-based BPM languages.

He provided training and consulting in all aspects of the Zachman Framework for Enterprise Architecture, with rapid delivery of priority areas using Enterprise Engineering. His application of these methods in large and medium Government, Defense and Commercial enterprises resulted in Business Transformation Enablement, so that business and IT managers and their staffs can plan for and achieve rapid business change. Enterprise Architecture provides a Governance Analysis Framework that supports Sarbanes-Oxley and other Governance Audit requirements. It provides direct support and linkage to Balanced Scorecard for Strategy-Focused Organizations, to ensure that IT systems and databases support defined Scorecard Measures, Strategy Maps and Governance requirements.
