Enterprise Architecture Capability Assessment

Our enterprise architecture capability maturity model (EACMM) assessment service helps clients evaluate the maturity of their enterprise architecture capability.

The EACMM is an independent evaluation designed to improve the overall architecture capability. The assessment is developed over 3 phases:

  • The Enterprise Architecture Maturity Model;
  • Enterprise Architecture Characteristics at Different Maturity Levels and Performance Criteria;
  • Enterprise Architecture Capability Maturity Model Assessment Scorecard.

Recommendations for each assessment area are provided to establish a route for increasing maturity, to a desired target maturity level.

Why Would You Need This Service?

This service is used to assess the capability maturity level of enterprise architecture in the business and helps track how EA is being matured and improved. Typically, an EA CMM assessment is measured at the beginning of an EACD phase 1 and again in phase 6. The target for many businesses is to improve the EACMM score by an average of 1 (for example from 1 to 2 or from 2 to 3) or more within a 12 month period.
