IDB had developed a 10 year business strategy. The strategy enables IDB to promote comprehensive human development, focusing on alleviating poverty, improving health, promoting education, improving governance and prospering the member countries people. IDB needed to execute this strategy through the creation of an IT strategy and the adoption of a defined enterprise architecture capability.
EAL rapidly established an enterprise architecture capability to a defined maturity level. This included:
- Definition of the goals, objectives and principles. The architecture vision defined a practical definition of how the strategy should be implemented across IDB.
- Establishment and operationalisation of EA governance.
- Capture, development and assessment of the baseline enterprise architecture.
- Definition of the target enterprise architecture across the business, data, application, integration, technology and security domains.
- Transformation plan, architecture roadmaps development and work package definition towards the formation of an enterprise transformation aligned to the strategic plan.

I engaged with EAL to assist in a deploying a quick start methodology to implement a Strategy and Architecture practice from scratch. EAL helped ensure a pragmatic agreement was reached that gave the right balance of flexibility but also (importantly) credibility in the EA offering, based on tried and tested experience. As a customer buying a service it is important that the relationship is NOT transactional and that the service provider act as a partner and advises against you making the wrong decision. EAL and his team not only delivered on the programme but also on the relationship. I would be happy to endorse EAL for anyone wanting to go on a similar journey.
EAL provided a team & business full of architects backed by deep method and experience. Importantly they work in a very collaborative and open manner. I had the pleasure of working with the EAL team for about 6 months and must say Jamie leads by example. EAL are extremely knowledgeable and are not afraid to tell and give the hard messages. It would be a pleasure to engage with the EAL team again.
