About the EA Capability Practice
Conexiam’s EA Capability Practice lives and works around the globe – currently in Canada, the United States, England and Saudi Arabia.
We have been establishing and enhancing EA Capability for over a decade. Some of the first EA teams we helped establish are still delivering value.
Early in 2015 we shared our method to establish a world class EA team. With The Open Group, we published the latest World Class EA White Paper, “A Leader’s Approach to Establishing and Evolving an EA Capability” available from The Open Group. The paper identifies best practices you should adopt to stand-up, strengthen and sustain your EA Capability. We look forward to future publications on Conexiam’s best practices.
We work in multiple industries with deep experience in capital intensive industries, finance, manufacturing and high-tech. We have established teams for century-old organizations and start-ups.
About the IT4IT Practice
It has been a long desire for every IT organization to be in a position to work alongside business and reflect the value it adds, that it is not a cost center but an essential cog to run the business, and dynamic evolution has its teething problems. Over the last three decades, use of Information and Communication Technology has evolved from separate applications to inter-connected solution across geographies and business. Likewise, many frameworks have evolved to manage specific pain points. IT4IT is a value chain based framework that provides an end-to-end business-like view of IT teams, embracing major frameworks like ITIL®, CoBIT®, SAFe® and TOGAF®.
At Conexiam, we have been practicing IT4IT for over a decade and our team shaped the standard. We develop a manage blueprint that is tightly aligned to your Organizational Objectives, mitigates the gaps in delivery efficiency, capabilities and guides your maturity through a light weight, yet, effective governance model.
We build straightforward, executable and repeatable enterprise architecture and solution architecture, using the TOGAF® Framework as a foundation. TOGAF® 9 is a proven, industry standard enterprise architecture methodology and framework used by the world’s leading organizations to improve business efficiency and drive competitive advantage. We build on that foundation with Navigate, our straightforward, practical customization for designing problem-solving roadmaps that achieve a described target. With Pilot, our proven change leadership methodology, we successfully deliver strategy-driven projects.
Our team brings to you expertise in Organizational Change Management, Operating Model refinement and will hand-hold your team to attain the maturity on-par or better than your peers in the industry. We are vendor neutral and have alliances with specialists who can traverse the information technology landscape from data center up to strategy and vice versa.
About the Digital Transformation Practice
In our experience, every Digital Transformation effort is an Organizational Transformation effort, irrespective of the industry. Large traditional firms have to operate in multiple modes to balance adoption of digital operations and continuity of business.
We have found successful organizations reshape the way they do business, derive value from existing strategic assets, based on a business vision. With our proven method Navigate, we draw the focus on how to drive the change and where to focus to align to the Organizational Objectives.
We enable you to crystalize your Digital Business Strategy, Innovation Focus and accelerate with the delivery of Digital Technology Integration. As your organization embarks on the Digital Transformation journey, our Navigate method provides an appropriate Governance model that links people and processes.
We build straightforward, executable and repeatable enterprise and solution architecture using the TOGAF® Framework as a foundation.

IT4IT is a value chain-based operating model for managing the business of IT, embracing major frameworks like ITIL®, CoBIT®, SAFe® and TOGAF. The Open Platform 3.0 Standard (under development) is an interoperability standard for digital platforms, so that enterprises can more easily use technologies like cloud computing, social computing, mobile computing, big data analytics and the Internet of Things (IoT) in business solutions.

Message from Dave
We assist our clients in discovering what their hopes, fears, dreams and nightmares are. Then we deal with reality. We work to systematically understand what must be, and what must not be, to realize the good things and to dodge the bullet.
I am driven to do this. Effective change is exciting. Moving past superstition, hunch and mythology feed my love of logic and reason. Systematically diagnosing the problem, identifying the barriers, laying out the changes and crisply articulating the end state is intellectually stimulating.
I believe that several notions form the foundation of Conexiam:
Most efforts to change are misguided and doomed to fail. When the we do not understand the shape of the outcome and the starting point is imagined the changes are doomed.
A systemic methodological approach is more useful than experience.
Facts are more valuable than assumptions. Far too often unexamined assumptions masquerade as facts.
Truth is power. We cannot expect good decisions to be based upon lies and evasion.
A wise woman told me that she believes Conexiam’s approach is a very grounded, result-driven, time-bound process that replaces doubts with truth and empowers and delivers.
Welcome to Conexiam.
