Corporate Training

​​”For corporate​s​, we have three different programs. Apart from training on ​’Enterprise Architecture and TOGAF​’​, we have two other programs namely, ​’Business Architecture is the Business of ​Business​’ and ​’Enterprise Architecture – an appreciation program for CXOs​’. These two programs are aimed ​at ​non-IT executives to appreciate the essential need for the practice of Enterprise Architecture. Somehow​,​ EA has come to be believed as a task of IT, which is far from the truth. Others have a much vital role to play in the design of process architecture as IT ​has ​in the design of IT architecture, which incidentally, only enables the business architecture for the organization to realize the business architecture and the benefits thereof.”



TESTIMONIALS

Here’s what our customers, who got inspired and benefitted by JPrakash Consulting, say:

  • Amazing training session. Listening to a theoretical topic and never making us feel bored is something only a good trainer can do. Mr. Prakash Jagannathan was indeed an excellent trainer.

    He answered all our questions and is experienced enough to look into our minds to understand the cause of confusion. It was one of the best trainings we have been part of. The trainer had a strong hold on the subject and highly skilled to relate to the subject problems with real life examples. The way he communicated with the group helped us to better our learning process. Also, his sense of humor kept the environment light and easy.

    Mr. Prakash was the key differentiator for a tough subject. Sharing his practical experience, he made the sessions very interesting.

  • I would like to take this opportunity to thank you, not only as a participant but also as an individual, for being able to institutionalize the concepts of TOGAF in a more objective and unequivocal manner than is often practiced. The clarity & granularity received towards the conceptual and practical understanding of concepts was unmatchable. I had taken training with with published sources in the past but this one has been one of the highlights & takeaways even with the twenty year experience with fortune 100 companies. Did pass the certification in colours over 80%...

    The workshop was instrumental in my realizing a constant need to relook & redefine the understanding & practice of TOGAF. I feel privileged to be a part of such an extensive & enriching experience.

  • The course material in PPT format was very crisp and made the theoritcal topic easy to understand. Mr Ravi Chandran explained the PPT in a manner which was good and unboring. At every juncture the emphasis was on relating to day to day work and how it can be made more EA centric. The mock exam discussions were very exciting as it was more or less like discussing with architects. A very good learning process used by JPrakash Consulting.

  • When we signed up for the program, I invited 4-5 colleagues from my organisation, not completely understanding how TOGAF would help us. I trusted Mr. Prakash and his promise that it would be a mini-MBA.

    While we all acknowledge that it was a mini MBA, what stood out for me was Mr. Prakash’s grasp of the art of TOGAF. Every new concept that he presented was beautifully applied to a real world scenario and we found it invaluable. We are looking forward to sponsoring more people from our organisation in the near future.

  • TOGAF which is very comprehensive in covering Architecture for enterprises requires focus and extensive reading. Prakash who trained me on TOGAF made it so easy to understand with lot of real life examples and scenarios during the 4 day schedule. His innovative method of providing a comprehensive summary on TOGAF on first day with recollection of it across the whole course for next 2 days, and last day was reserved for playback by the trainees.

  • I am fortunate and privileged to have trained in TOGAF by Mr. Prakash. Mr. Prakash’s life time experience (over 4 decades) combined with his in-depth knowledge on TOGAF, his passion and commitment has made our training session a satisfying and memorable experience. He has taken us thru a practical industry scenario as case study through out the program that is aligned with each of the sections of the training, made us perform it as exercise and also provided guidance understanding the subject and solution. Mr. Prakash has also given us orientation and tricks to identify suitable solution and answers from certification point of view. In my 23 years of my professional experience, Mr. Prakash is one rarest personality I have come across who is a passionate Enterprise Architecture Practitioner. I am proud to have Mr. Prakash as my “EA Guru”

With his abundant life experiences and knowledge, he made the sessions flooded with appropriate live examples and scenarios with practical tips. The 4 day training was worth the time spent as he was well organized and covered all the relevant topics on the subject. His Interactive approach made us all attentive throughout. He also prepared us well from the TOGAF Certification point of view. The 4th day, with all of us summarizing and presenting the modules made us all realize how well he has made us learn so much in such a short time.

    He has the perfect combination of Experience, Humor, Presentation Skills, Expertise in the Subject and Patience. We already started practicing EA in our organization and all credits to our tutor.

CONSULTANCY

“Senior executives across all functions now realize that IT is capable of game-changing innovation and business transformation that can spur revenue growth, get product to market faster, and sometimes generate entirely new business models… … … …. The possibilities created by technology, should spark innovation in business process and product offerings, and data driven insights should help shape business strategies.”. – From an article written by Sirish Chandrasekaran, Robert Levin, Harry Patel and Roger Roberts, all consultants from McKinsey & Company titled “Winning with IT in consumer packaged goods: Seven Trends transforming the role of CIO”.
 
We offer consultancy on enterprise architecture and adoption of TOGAF. You need to ask the following question to yourself.

 
 

Do your board members feel

  • We have spent so much on IT, why does it take so long to get consolidated details?
  • Whenever there is even a small change in regulatory requirements, it takes far too long to realign
  • Why are user functions always unhappy with the delivery of IT? Why are they always suspicious of the integrity of data they receive?
Does your marketing department experience

  • Different data coming from different sources for the same requirement
  • Unavailability of timely data to take proper decisions in the market
  • Too much irrelevant data provided for the most trivial of tasks
Does your finance department wonder

  • Why we did not get the ROI from the IT spend?
  • Why are we always delayed in filing statutory reports with regulators?
Does your internal audit report always speak of

  • A lack of governance on the execution of processes
  • The same activity being performed at different places in the organization using different processes
Does your CIO wonder

  • How does it work with so many disparate systems running on such different platforms and solutions?
  • If there are constantly different processes and solutions due to various acquisition decisions of the board, why am I blamed for delays?
  • Are we spending a substantial chunk of our IT budget on simply reentering data from one process to another?
Is your COO perplexed about how to end the constant bickering between marketing and production teams?

  • IF your answer is YES to any of these questions, then there is a need to look at your fundamental architecture. JPrakash Consultancy can work closely with your company to provide assistance in identifying the areas that need attention. We will act as the mentor to your architecture team in designing the architectural foundation for your organization. We will never suggest ‘scrap and build’ solutions. We will help you to develop ‘creep and grow’ architecture. We will help you realize the value of dedicated architectural and IT investments.

FAQ


Got any doubts or need clarification? Check out this space for all frequently asked questions.

What impact will this certification have on my career growth path?
  • Let us look at it this way. People join MBA programs all over the world. After the program ends, nobody gets appointed as a CEO of an organization. But doing an MBA makes the person eligible to be appointed as CEO one day. Similarly this certification makes you eligible to be appointed as an Enterprise Architect. Depending on your current level and experience, it could happen sooner or later.
     
    Based on the subject matter covered by J Prakash and his method of teaching, if the information is assimilated properly, one could become eligible to be appointed as a CEO. Of course much depends on how effectively you absorb and apply what you learn here to your job. One thing is certain, at the end of this program you will go as a changed person in terms of your thinking, your approach and your attitude.
     
    Take a look at what some people who have attended this course have to say in the testimonials page.
Do we get PDU credit?
  • Yes you do. People claim anywhere from 28 to 32 hours of credit.
How easy is it to pass the exams?

Why does EA development require mentoring?
  • EA development is both an art and a science. TOGAF provides the science. But, for the science to produce effective and useful architecture, the art of identifying the appropriate Principles, Policies, the Stakeholders, their concerns and arriving at an optimal trade off of concerns is essential. JP has acquired these skills by his long corporate experience and exposure to top management positions very early in his corporate career. JP’s experiences includes the two positions of Management Accountant and Corporate Planner. This exposure has given him the skill required to develop the appropriate Governance Framework to make the development of EA a success.
