Ease Your Efforts With Our Experienced Consultants
EA studies are typically long-term projects planned in phases where each phase has its own life-cycle and the scope is gradually expanded. This approach fundamentally supports business-IT alignment more thoroughly especially when IT units operate with limited resources. Our EA consultancy service aims at revealing 4 fundamental layers of your corporate’s architecture – Business and Process Architecture, Data and Information Architecture, Solution and Application Architecture, Technology and Infrastructure Architecture – and the relationships among these layers. With help of our consultants you will be able to model these distinct architectures as conceptual, logical and physical layers in accordance to your requirements. During the modeling work, meta-models will be designed, sample models will be developed, checked for accuracy and suitability, assessed for effective use and guided for revisions when necessary.
At initiation of the EA studies we help you transform your corporate-level vision and strategies into architectural vision in line with the scope of the underlying phase. Depending on the preferences of your organization a separate organizational unit is founded who is responsible of developing the architectural management plan. This plan defines phases, possible EA services, clear outputs, transition plans and communication channels. There is always a dual perspective, where the existing “as-is” and targeted “to-be” scopes are modeled and analyzed separately. Models and analysis outputs are disseminated throughout the organization through the communication channels created. The transition plan of the target architecture is laid out as transformation roadmaps for both IT and business units. Thus, the alignment between IT and the business units is supported and strengthened by a common language and a common goal.
Our consultancy and advisory services provide necessary guidance at every stage of the complete business process life cycle. These cover discovery methods, scoping, modeling and analysis, model assessment, framework support, tool support, organizational support, assessment of outputs and communication channels, guidance, evaluation and reporting, transition planning and transformational execution.
