Enterprise Architecture

Henning Klaßen

Expert in Digital Architecture Management

Since and before the start of my career, I have been convinced that all problems can be solved with understanding, structure and adaptivity. Enterprise Architecture Management (EAM) provides a struc-tured framework for understanding problems and solving them appropriately.

Digitization brings with it many uncertainties for companies: how does my company change organi-zationally, which skills do I need, which operational changes are necessary? As an expert in Enterprise Architecture Management and as a project manager, I find answers to these questions together with my customers through EAM. This includes creating transparency through development plans and sus-tainability through anchoring EAM at the customer. Thus, my customers can look forward to future challenges with ease.

The recent successes in projects confirm this:

  • The creation of a strategic target architecture for a German energy supplier supports the CEO in the orientation of the company and the opening of new business areas
  • The creation of a target architecture to make internal IT more flexible in terms of agility and DevOps with the establishment of an enterprise architecture management helps a German universal bank to save costs and at the same time comply with regulatory requirements
  • The establishment of an enterprise architecture management of a Swiss company in the retail sector ensures transparency and the discovery of cost potential as well as support for innova-tion

In my career before Capgemini Invent, I worked in large companies in the telecommunications and banking sectors. I was primarily responsible for IT-specific issues in context of EAM. This includes methodology and governance using EAM in IT, optimization of IT through IT4IT and other cross-cutting issues such as (web) portals and enterprise content management.

Apart from my more than 12 years of professional life, I am working on my dissertation in the field of Enterprise Architecture Management and discover the nature, sights, zoos and museums of the world as well as the “closer” environment with my wife and my two children.
