Measuring the Value of EA

Brian Cameron, CEA Faculty and Assoc. Dean, Smeal College of Business, Penn State

Abstract: Enterprise Architecture (EA) is increasingly being utilized by many types of organizations.  Despite its growing popularity, the challenge facing many organizations is how to measure and demonstrate evidence of the value that EA provides to an enterprise. To provide some insight into this problem, this session provides an overview of the means used to measure the value of EA within organizations. This session seeks to accomplish four tasks.  First, to demonstrate that EA value measurement is a challenge that needs to be addressed within organizations.  Second, to highlight the variety of methods and measures that organizations currently use in their attempts to measure the value of EA.  Third, to provide insight into the reported challenges facing organizations involved in the process of measuring the value of EA. Fourth, to propose a conceptual model for EA value measurement that can be utilized by organizations who have implemented EA.
