Enterprise Architecture Services

 

 

Enterprise Architecture (EA) provides the processes, tools and techniques to determine current and future IT needs across the enterprise to align IT with the enterprise’s business goals.

A properly implemented Enterprise Architecture (EA) program can have a direct impact on your company/organization/agency’s agility in meeting regulatory challenges and adapting to changing environments. Enterprise Architecture (EA) can help companies/organizations/agencies incorporate their best practices and experiences into decisions about technology investments, compliance and emerging technologies, such as Business Process Management (BPM) and Service-Oriented Architectures (SOAs). Enterprise Architecture (EA) helps companies/organizations/agencies understand the relationships between systems, data and people to its broader business goals. The next evolution, Actionable Architecture, takes enterprise information and helps people understand its context within the enterprise and to use this knowledge to improve organizational flexibility and responsiveness.

Enterprise Architecture (EA) acts as a central access point for the capture and dissemination of IT and business process information throughout all levels of a company/organization as a means to improve decision making. The term Actionable Architecture moves Enterprise Architecture (EA) from a static project to becoming a central platform for the capture and dissemination of IT and business process information. In essence, Enterprise Architecture (EA) becomes a strategic foundation for knowledgeable decision making and is based on traceable facts in a repository.

Enterprise Architecture (EA) is a "road map" that shows the relationships among the processes, data and IT infrastructure found in multi-vendor, multi-platform environments such as those found in defense agency environments. Enterprise Architecture (EA) documents the current and future technology environment and the gap between the two. Enterprise Architecture (EA) also moves beyond the engineering perspective and examines requirements and application delivery. Enterprise Architecture (E) also adds the perspective of analysis and distribution of business and technology information.

Enterprise Architecture (EA) is a means for developing a shared vocabulary, a first step toward integration and interoperability within and among organizations. It offers a flexible platform for sorting data appropriate to different users and audiences and facilitates the reuse of data across many systems. In the defense world, Enterprise Architecture assists in the development of integrated architectures, replacing the single solution approach of the past, or the "silo" approach.
