    • North Carolina Enterprise Architecture
      • It is an Enterprise-Wide Technical Architecture; we call it a Statewide Technical Architecture.
      • It is NOT currently an Enterprise Business or Information Architecture.
      • It is NOT a product list.
      • We have a mature architecture. We began using the STA as a framework for projects in 1997.
      • We recently completed a self-directed review.

  • 9. EA Review Findings
    • We Found That:
      • Agencies often had difficulty interpreting the principles, practices, and standards.
      • There was resistance, on the part of some agencies, to following the STA.
      • The technical architecture was not very usable.
      • The technical architecture was not current.
      • Change happened very slowly.
      • The architecture team was too small.
  • 10. EA Review Findings
    • We Found That:
      • The technical architecture was too narrowly focused.
      • There were inconsistencies in the architecture.
      • We did not have a way of measuring whether having an Enterprise Architecture was having the desired effect.
      • The supporting products and processes were often poorly defined.
  • 11. Presentations Glossary Workgroups & Committees White Papers Purchasing Contracts Implementation Guidelines Policies & Legislation Principles, Practices, Standards Architecture Products Informational items that comprise the enterprise technical architecture.
  • 12. NC Enterprise Architecture Maturity Review Evergreen Strategy Training Plan Content Development Governance Architecture Processes Processes are the methods used to maintain the Architecture.
