Version 2.6.0 of the Higher Education Reference Models is now available. The result of a year's work by the CAUDIT Higher Education Reference Models Working Group (HERM-WG), this update includes new artefacts and offers significant improvements.
The biggest change introduced by the new version of the reference models is that the Business Reference Model has been separated into two artefacts, a Business Capability Model and a Business Model Canvas. Using the Business Model Canvas, this arrangement provides HERM users with much greater flexibility over the representation of motivations and business outcomes specific to their own institution and their specific strategic planning scenarios.
The dedication and contribution of each and every member of the HERM-WG is gratefully acknowledged: Karen Modena (La Trobe University), Nigel Foxwell (James Cook University), Alan Dent (AUT), Sasenka Abeysooriya (The University of Queensland), Michelle Phillips (Deakin University), Paul Tasker (QUT), Galen White and Pieter Steyn (From Here On), and jeff kennedy (The University of Auckland).
Contributions from friends and colleagues in our international communities are clearly visible in the new version, reflecting the value of collaborations arising from the Joint Statements of Intent agreed by CAUDIT with UCISA and EDUCAUSE.
CAUDIT members should visit https://www.caudit.edu.au/EA-Framework to access these valuable resources and provide any feedback and suggestions through the CAUDIT Enterprise Architecture Community of Practice.
