Architecture Maturity Assessment

Sourcing and transformation banner image

Challenge

Our client faced a number of challenges relating to architecture delivery, including a lack of consistency in architecture approaches or to building architectures, no explicit alignment of architecture to business strategy, alignment and definition of how architecture should be used in programmes and projects were not clear, no view of dependencies between applications and data repositories. An independent review was required in order to identify opportunities for improvement.

Solution

Using our proprietary Architecture Maturity Assessment toolkit, Peru undertook a “light” review of the architecture function, including:

Building a stakeholder map

Review of the current architecture operating model, governance structures and approaches to architecture

Structured interviews to provide a 360 degree view of current ways of working and maturity levels

Outcome

The review recommended a number of timebound, prioritised next steps:

  • Improvements to the governance framework and its operation/efficiency
  • Definition of core architecture artifacts and improvements in programme/project engagement processes
  • Enhancements to delivery effectiveness including the development of Enterprise Architecture Principles and a communication plan
  • Revision of organisational structure, roles and responsibilities and skills analysis
  • Improvements to stakeholder engagement

Testimonial

Peru quickly developed the requisite knowledge about our organisation, architecture capabilities and culture enabling them to provide us with a clarity of thinking that we’d struggled to arrive at. Their dedication and quality immediately stood out to us and combined with their tireless focus on the right outcomes provided value very quickly. Peru deliver excellent, high quality work and have integrated exceptionally well with our internal team so much so that I really consider them an extension of my architecture team. Highly recommend them.
