Benefits of Enterprise Architecture

The concrete benefits of Enterprise Architecture include:

 

Improve Alignment of Investments

Ensure you’re investing in the right projects and the right assets at the right time. Design your enterprise applications with all of your other assets in mind.

Eliminate Silos Between Business and IT

Remove the siloed setup between your technology assets and your business processes. Instead, leverage your technology for your business with improved enterprise implementations.

Improve Your Understanding of What You Have

Get the big picture of all of your technology and business assets. With a renewed understanding, you can link assets to one another, using these relationships to guide better decisions.

Formalize Standards

All of your assets serve the same business and should have the same standards. Formalize what you already have in place and set up standards for future projects and acquisitions.

Reduce Complexity

With a full analysis of your business, technology, information and infrastructure assets you cut down on technical debt and redundancy. Enjoy improved agility with simplified enterprise assets and straightforward new processes.

Accelerate Time to Market

Analyze the requirements and impact of new initiatives from the start, reducing log jams closer to project completion. Automate much of the effort behind collection, validation and reporting projects. New internal efficiencies mean you cut down on your time to value dramatically.

Reduce Costs

You don’t always have to set out to cut costs in order to improve margins. By reworking your technical debt, reducing redundancies, diagramming efficiencies and automating processes, you’ll see cost savings immediately after implementation.

Reduce Risk

With a full EA consultation, you will almost certainly surface asset health issues that would otherwise go undetected. In turn, the EA roadmap will set up processes to remediate risks associated with security and performance. You’ll also be better prepared to avoid these risks moving forward.
