  • 1. Enterprise Architecture(EA) Maturity Models

  • 3. Common Traits for all EA Maturity Models
    Most are modelled on the Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI)
    The model has a number of levels(from 4-7) of maturity
    Each level has an attribute or characteristic that can be rated based on the maturity of the activities performed by the EA function
    Some models make recommendations in what are the areas of improvement
    Some provide tools to help assess your maturity
