  • Architecture maturity assessment
  • Architecture service card
  • Architecture role definition
  • Architecture operating model
  • Architecture maturity roadmap

Architecture Engagement and Branding

Make sure all your hard work is recognised and understood by key stakeholders – while demonstrating the importance of EA as a strategic enabler.
  • Architecture communications strategy
  • Architecture value proposition
  • Mentoring and coaching
  • Architecture visualisations

The first stage is a capability modelling process to see where you are spending your money and consider where you should be spending it.

2

The second stage is to help the architecture team put together a business case for the recommended actions resulting from our findings.

Finally, there is a vendor-agnostic selection process. This focus is not on the features and benefits of the system but on user personas, which is how people would use the system every day in their jobs.

Application Portfolio
Health Check

Most organisations have applications that they just don’t need. Streamlining your portfolio is an ongoing requirement of a healthy EA function.

You can use our proven methodology to get answers to pressing questions like the following:
  • Can you quantify the TCO and distribution of spend?
  • Is your application spend correctly aligned to your strategy?
  • Which applications can you completely decommission?
