Measuring Enterprise Architecture Effectiveness: A Focus on Key Performance Indicators

  title={Measuring Enterprise Architecture Effectiveness: A Focus on Key Performance Indicators},
  author={W. G{\"u}nther},
Any organizational practice should be able to show its “value”, including enterprise architecture (EA). Measuring the extent to which EA leads to certain desired results is essential when determining its value for an organization. However, measuring this EA e↵ectiveness is often deemed di cult by both practitioners and researchers. Reasons for this are, for example, causality issues, a longer-term focus, and the di culty of selecting performance indicators. As one should be aware of what to… Expand
An effective Enterprise Architecture Implementation Methodology
The aim of this research is to develop an effective EAIM to support EA implementation and identify effective EA implementation practices and the factors that impact the effectiveness of EAIM. Expand
Organizational Subcultures and Enterprise Architecture Effectiveness: Findings from a Case Study at a European Airport Company
It is discovered that not only subcultural differences but also subcultural similarity can reduce EA effectiveness, and the preference for working isolated of some business departments results in a lack of communication between those departments, which lowers EA effectiveness. Expand


The Organizational Impact of Enterprise Architecture: A Research Framework
Key issues associated with the evaluation of the organizational impact of Enterprise Architecture are raised and a framework for empirical research in this area is proposed. Expand
Enterprise Architecture Coming of Age : Increasing the Performance of an Emerging Discipline
Based on interviews with a number of architects and managers from a wide range of organizations, we characterize how EA is perceived and applied in practice. The key aspects of how EA is perceived inExpand

This paper conducts a series of semi-structured interviews with industry experts on enterprise architecture in order to identify classes of EA goals, corresponding EA frameworks adoption to achieve these goals and employed EA benefit assessment approaches. Expand
Applying Design Science Research for Enterprise Architecture Business Value Assessments
The main contribution of this research is the detailed focus on how artifacts are actually conceived in an organizational context and the realization that a complex environment demands for more than just one artifact. Expand
Enterprise Architecture Valuation and Metrics: A Survey-Based Research Study
Enterprise Architecture (EA) is increasingly being adopted and utilized by all types of organizations (Fri 2007; Jung 2009; Kappelman et al. 2008). Despite its growing popularity, the challengeExpand
A Balanced Scorecard Approach to Measure the Value of Enterprise Architecture
The value returned by Enterprise Architecture (EA) is being viewed with increasing consideration by researchers and practitioners. They struggle to justify the EA investments made. Quantifying theExpand
Enterprise Architecture Quality Attributes: A Case Study
This study identifies ten quality attributes for EA products and services, utilizing data collected from 14 EA practitioner interviews, and proposes a list of attributes that increase EA quality, and calls for more research. Expand
Assessing Business-IT Alignment Maturity
The strategic alignment maturity assessment is introduced, based on the authors’ research and consulting experience, that identified the major enablers and inhibitors in the achievement of business-IT alignment and the methodology that leverages the most important enabler and inhibitors. Expand
How Does Enterprise Architecture Add Value to Organisations?
The paper consolidates the fragmented knowledge on EA benefits and presents the EA Benefits Model (EABM), which proposes that EA leads to organisational benefits through its impact on four benefit enablers: Organisational Alignment, Information Availability, Resource Portfolio Optimisation, and Resource Complementarity.
