Evaluating Your Enterprise Architecture >>
A logical, business focused enterprise architecture (EA) can deliver exceptional business benefits and investment returns. Ensuring such results is the goal of enterprise architecture evaluation, which should be done periodically by an independent team. Independent evaluation will facilitate confident decisions by EA management and sponsors; provide valuable input to the architecture team; and help the architecture succeed by adding visibility and weight to the team’s authority. Effective evaluations can be performed using one of the many publicly available methodologies or via homegrown methods.
