Enterprise Re-Architecting (ERA™) ?
ERA™ is a holistic approach that allows
any type of organization to design a world-class
enterprise. Through the use of structured analysis,
design, and implementation; an organization can
transform its “default” enterprise
architecture into one that is performance based
and requirements driven.
ERA™ facilitates the process by which an
organization revisits its goals and major business
objects; and then optimizes (rearchitects) its
administrative and organizational components,
technical systems, and personnel structure in
order to better succeed in its mission. Individual
success metrics vary by organization and can be
any combination of reduced cost, better quality,
better customer responsiveness, shorter time to
market, more productive workers, and more.
What separates ERA™ from most approaches
is that it is holistic, i.e., it takes into account
all aspects of the enterprise and not just specific
elements like information technology (IT), manufacturing
systems, business and administrative issues, etc.
ERA™ focuses on the three fundamental components
of an enterprise, namely:
• Human Systems
• Administrative and
Organizational (A&O) Systems
• Technical Systems
