The Enterprise Architecture Standards are the result of years of international academic research and industry expert consensus on repeatable patterns that can be reused and replicated. The Enterprise Architecture Standards are packaged as ‘Reference Content’, and is both agnostic and vendor neutral. They have been specifically designed to be fully tailored to and implemented by any organization, both large and small, regardless of its various frameworks, methods, approaches, products, services and activities.
The Enterprise Architecture Standards are developed in the following ways:
- Research and analyze what works – again and again (Best Practices) – and discover the unique aspects applied by leading organizations (Leading Practices).
- Identify common and repeatable patterns which provide the basis for the Enterprise Standards.
- Develop ‘Reference Content’ that increase the level of reusability and replication within the disciplines of Enterprise Modelling, Enterprise Engineering and Enterprise Architecture.
- Extend with performance and value accelerators with unique aspects from the identified Best Practices and Leading Practices.
The Enterprise Architecture Standards consist of 16 different ‘Reference Content’ areas that are fully integrated with other frameworks, methods and approaches, such as TOGAF, META, FEAF, etc. This ensures full integration and standardization when applying the reference content into your organization, programs and/or projects, thereby having the ability to use our reference content across topics like strategy, capabilities, roles, and process, service and value aspects and technology as well as operational execution between them, creating a cross link throughout the Business, Information, and Technology layers.
