Washington, DC (October 1st, 2014) – TeraThink is proud to be part of Team LOGC2 (LOGC2 Inc. DBA Connected Logistics), that has been awarded a GSA Schedule contract to provide Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) SAP Technical and Management Support Services (TMSS) for General Fund Enterprise Business System (GFEBS), Army Enterprise System Integration Program (AESIP), and associated Army ERP programs, together comprising one of the world’s largest and most complex ERP systems.
Enterprise Architecture (EA) has developed a reputation. We’re often reminded of this when in a meeting with senior business leadership and someone explicitly mentions the EA program. Eyes roll back in heads, quick loaded glances are exchanged, an audible exhale is heard as if to say, “Ugh. Not this again.” If you’ve seen one of these reactions or maybe even all three simultaneously (unofficially known as the EA Trifecta), unfortunately you are not alone. EA programs in all corners of business and government are struggling to demonstrate substantial organizational value and achieve true enterprise buy-in and acceptance.
It is not for a lack of trying. Organizations that have decided to invest in EA programs are usually making substantial personnel (both internal resources and external consultants) as well as software investments in support of their EA programs. In addition, organizations typically incur significant indirect EA costs in the form of stakeholder meetings and presentations. Many enterprises have started to take a hard look at their EA program to assess whether the EA program is worth the investment. It has left organizations asking themselves, “What’s wrong with our architecture?”, a question that Frank Lloyd Wright most certainly asked himself more than once.
As IT professionals, we see organizations experiencing a variety of challenges with their enterprise architecture programs. There are many potential pitfalls when it comes to establishing a value-driven EA capability. If you find yourself struggling to comprehend what’s wrong with your architecture, consider the following questions that might uncover some of the issues preventing your EA program from providing real enterprise value.
