    Enterprise Architecture – Synchronising Business and IT

    With pragmatic approaches and based on industry standards (TOGAF), we support clients in the introduction of an effective EAM.Get in touch with us

    Bring your IT and your business together with Enterprise Architecture

    If you are facing the following challenges, it is time to think about introducing Enterprise Architecture Management (EAM):

    • IT does not sufficiently support the implementation of the corporate strategy.
    • The use of technologies is insufficiently oriented to the requirements of the company.
    • IT competences are neither used in a planned way nor developed in a targeted way.
    • There is a lack of a "common language" for coordination between business and IT.

    Benefit from an Enterprise Architecture


    In many organisations, the role of architecture management is limited to creating plans of the current IT landscape and making them available to target groups such as IT management, project managers or IT steering committees. Only with comprehensive enterprise architecture management does IT become the innovation partner of its own organisation.

    Transparency gain

    Comprehensive enterprise architecture management consistently focuses on transparency, starting with the organisation's requirements for IT, through the services, systems and applications provided by IT, to the underlying deployment procedures and operating models. Any gaps (so-called "fit gaps") are documented and evaluated on the basis of risk and cost parameters.


    In addition to enabling the IT organisation to optimise and innovate, EAM forces the implementation of standards, combined with the optimisation of the IT service catalogue, the streamlining of the IT portfolio (Lean IT) and the consolidation and integration of operational processes. EAM as a discipline should be a pioneer in following leading market standards, e.g. TOGAF (The Open Group Architecture).

    Cost savings & risk reduction

    Enterprise Architecture Management provides the basis for sustainable cost savings while reducing operational risks in IT. On the one hand, this is done by consistently questioning the extent to which technologies, service concepts and processes contribute to achieving the strategic goals of an organisation. On the other hand, by pushing IT standards and reducing complexity.

    Together we build the suitable Enterprise Architecture

    We are known for our methodological knowledge, our extensive experience in the transformation of IT organisations and our expertise in current technological developments. We speak and understand both "business" and "IT".

    Architecture Concept & Assurance

    With a sense of proportion and pragmatism, we deliver holistic concepts for the introduction of effective Enterprise Architecture Management.

    "What I don't know won't hurt me" does not apply to IT. Only with transparency can you proactively manage costs and risks in IT.

    Technology Business Management

    The use of IT is not an end in itself, but aims to make processes more efficient and secure. We put it to the test.

    Target Operating Model Design

    With the knowledge of "what" IT should do, the question of "how" arises. We support the optimisation of IT operations.

    What is Enterprise Architecture?

    Enterprise architecture builds a functional bridge between the strategic and operational requirements of the company and IT and thus forms the basis for the digitalisation of business processes and administrative procedures. Enterprise architecture also aims to harmonise and consolidate the IT infrastructure and supports the introduction of company-wide standards for the IT resources used.

    The benefit of enterprise architecture is, on the one hand, a fast implementation of the corporate strategy without major frictional losses. On the other hand, it helps to reduce the error rate in IT and to increase IT efficiency.

    Enterprise architecture management has strategic and operational aspects:

    • The strategic tasks include identifying areas of activity for investments in IT in accordance with the business strategy and portfolio management and defining architecture standards.
    • At the operational level, enterprise architecture management supports the networking of IT management processes and provides the conceptual basis for the continuous analysis of technologies used, the derivation of necessary optimisation measures and their controlling.
