The Supreme Discipline of the CIO

Today, business, technological and social influences are changing our markets on a daily basis. Companies must be in a position to adapt their business models and processes to these new, fast-moving market conditions. Yet without modern Enterprise Architecture Management, achieving this adaptation at the necessary speed is almost impossible. This requires business processes, data and information structures and the architecture of the underlying IT systems to work together seamlessly. But what is already standard fare for technology companies has yet to become rooted in the DNA of many traditional businesses. We help you to set up and operate Enterprise Architecture Management. Agile business processes, a consistent data structure, cloud computing, platform-oriented IT architectures and low-code development environments are only a few of the issues which determine this process. Enterprise Architecture Management is therefore becoming the hub between departments and IT, and the CIO’s main discipline. 

EAM Standards
Standards such as the TOGAF Framework provide a widespread approach to setting up Enterprise Architecture Management. On the basis of these standards, we help you to design and implement a bespoke EAM in your company.

Structure and Process Organisation
Your structure and process organisation provides the basis for the content design of your EAM. Together, we derive a framework for structuring your EAM. This ensures that your EAM is optimally tailored to your organisation and business processes.

EAM Tools
There are various EAM tools on the market for documenting and administering your company architecture. With our many EAM projects’ worth of experience, we help you to define your individual requirements and select the optimal EAM tools.

EAM Experts
Successfully filling the necessary roles is a decisive factor to the successful establishment and continuation of an EAM. We help you to select appropriate candidates and support the professional development of your employees.

A sequential implementation of upcoming EAM tasks requires the right prioritisation and selection of the necessary activities. With our experience from many EAM projects, we create a suitable step-by-step plan together with you.
EAM Assessment
Are you looking to further develop your EAM and need an independent assessment of the status quo? With our EAM assessment, we assess the degree of maturity of the structure, processes and systems of your Enterprise Architecture Management.

EAM Heat Map
We summarise the results of the EAM assessment in a meaningful Heat Map. This shows you your hotspots and the corresponding actions required at a glance. On this basis, we jointly develop a roadmap to optimise your Enterprise Architecture Management.

Digital Technology Trends
With the rapid development and implementation of new technologies, your EAM is also continuously changing. We show you how to map current trends in areas such as digitisation, data analysis, the cloud or agility onto your EAM.

Sparring Partner
The complexity of the requirements for modern-day EAMs requires a regular, unobstructed view of structures, organisations and systems. Armed with our experience from many EAM projects, we discuss specific EAM issues with you, provide experience from comparable projects and also provide support as required in order to resolve specific tasks.
Cloud Architectures
What does your cloud infrastructure look like? Is data security and integrity guaranteed? Which criteria lead to the selection of the appropriate cloud platform? Thanks to our experience from a variety of comparable projects, we can help you to develop and implement a future-oriented cloud strategy.

Information and Data Architecture
Information and data architectures make up the backbone of your company. Understanding your own data forms the basis for modern data analysis. We support you in the structuring, modelling and analysis of the data and information in your company.

Projects and EAM
Projects change processes, data and IT systems. Dovetailing your projects with your EAM therefore determines their quality, and hence the benefits to your company. We analyse this dovetailing in a review, and identify and help you achieve optimisation potential>

Changes within the Company
The continuous expansion of business models and the associated adjustments to processes and structures consequently also change your EAM. We help you to plan and implement the necessary transformation of your EAM and its underlying IT.

EAM and Cyber Security
In an increasingly complex IT world, it is becoming more and more difficult to guarantee adequate cyber security. In our experience, it is effective to dovetail EAM and cyber security to a greater extent. We help you to expand your EAM with a self-contained view for your cyber security.
