About Enterprise Architecture
Ultimately, enterprise architecture saves time and money by simplifying the complex and aligning technology endeavors to corporate objectives.
Pain Points Solved with EA
- Project execute in a silo with no semblance of orchestration
- Leaders aren’t aligned on corporate vision
- A preference toward buying tools versus designing solutions
- Infighting and tactical disagreement among department leaders
- Expensive software churn: tools are purchased, replaced with new tools, then replaced again
- Painfully long delivery times to produce new products
- Over-complexity with business systems
- SaaS software sprawl with many overlapping tools
- Legacy system challenges that never seem to go away
How EA as a Service Works
First, a seasoned enterprise architect will be assigned to your account. The EA’s first order of business it so “x-ray” your organization; enumerating key business capabilities and processes to applications, data, and infrastructure. Our time-tested processes and resultant artifacts have been used countless times within many of the Fortune 500 companies, so getting up to speed with your “as-is” landscape has never been faster. This process alone can provide tremendous value to executives who have never seen the comprehensive union of business processes and supporting technology throughout their enterprise.
Once the as-is landscape is mapped out, understanding potential capability gaps comes next. This stage assesses strengths and weaknesses of the existing enterprise capabilities, and commences the lifespan of the organization’s capability map.
Return on Investment
If that sounds too good to be true, allow us to explain.
Most people don’t have a full-time personal trainer, accountant, or lawyer. Instead, people leverage these services as needed, up to the point of apex value. For many mid-sized (and at times, large) companies, enterprise architecture is rarely a full-time job. As such, practitioners of EA take on additional activities such as solution architecture, conducting governance rituals, and light vendor management. While those are valuable activities, we at Center Mast focus strictly on EA, and EA alone. This approach allows us to deliver the right amount of EA at the right time. As a customer, you benefit from an EA practice that is both scalable and elastic.
