In the history of the federal government, there are perhaps no two words more misunderstood (and more money wasted on) than Enterprise Architecture. Hundreds of millions have been spent cataloging and classifying manually collected information for little to no value.
The intention was sound. What was intended to drive greater visibility and identify opportunities for consolidation and simplification however, became for many organizations, a very expensive reporting exercise for external parties. Northramp helps organizations refocus the energies spent on enterprise architecture to drive greater internal value through identification of immediate opportunities for standardization, enhancement of technology standards, and integration of standards into planning, governance, and acquisition processes.
Standards Development/ Enhancement
Northramp helps organizations evaluate and improve their technical standards with a combined focus on approved technologies, implementation methods, and product agnostic standards. Northramp's approach helps organizations better connect standards to their governance and planning processes as well as to their current systems portfolio - resulting in better, more practical opportunity identification and sustainable input into planned system efforts.
IT Roadmap Development
Leveraging our proven IT Information Framework (ITIF) and approach, Northramp helps organizations develop a sustainable architecture planning capability, supported where necessary by our flexible and extensible tools sets. Northramp's approach helps organizations connect architecture planning to the organization's overarching systems planning activities, enabling near real-time reporting on progress towards identified goals and targets.
