Layer by layer of the enterprise, our experts help our clients see linkages, understand context, and manage the complexity of their changing IT assets.
Having the power of perspective, our clients can then save money through process and technology streamlining. We are able to do this because we take the time to truly understand our clients businesses, provide clarity by moving from an often messy as-is to an integrated architecture, and ensure alignment between the top level strategy and lowest level through metrics.
Our consultants bring a best practices approach to the EA lifecycle model (Assessment, Data Collection, As-Is, To-Be, Transformation Plan, Implementation, Continuous Improvement) during which we focus on everything from the business side to the technology side. We achieve this by integrating governance as a core element of EA rather than a peripheral activity. We build consensus by bringing in all relevant stakeholders and engaging them such that the end result is their solution and not our solution.
Our EA leverages SOA concepts to ensure that we are effectively using resources and improving overall system security and scalability through reuse of common software services. Again, governance plays a central change management role here in terms of how we approach coordination of software development activities across a large enterprise.
Frameworks & Tools
We are well-versed in the DoD Architecture Framework (DODAF), Federal Enterprise Architecture (FEA) & Federal Segment Architecture Methodology (FSAM) and have prior experience with all three. Additionally, we have used tools such as Telelogic, Troux, and Sparx for enterprise portfolio management, modeling, and business process optimization.
