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.
IDB spent two years looking for a suitable partner competent in providing enterprise architecture services. EAL became a partner of IDB by winning a competitive tender. Boston consulting group had developed a 10 year business strategy to promote IDB’s core business values. EAL were able to turn the business strategy into a transformation plan implemented by using their enterprise architecture methodology to define a knowledge base of the current enterprise architecture, target architecture and transformation roadmap. The key deliverables have been endorsed by his excellency the VP for operations. This means that EA is now used to govern the transformation programme. EAL are a clever and practical organisation.
EAL worked with us at KSAU-HS to develop our Enterprise Architecture. With their vast and in-depth knowledge on the subject, we were able to complete the Enterprise Architecture for our organization in record time.
The quality of work was exceptional and we are sure to utilize the deliverables of this project to proceed with our aspirations in managing the IT in smart and most effective way.

We have been able to use the practical outputs to procure a number of suppliers, systems and technologies wrapped in defined work packages allowing us to embark on the programme. We will definitely engage EAL to develop the EA capability for the remaining subsidiaries.
