Enterprise Architecture (EA) presents the fundamental components of an organization in its environment, its relationships and the principles that govern its design and evolution. Thus, Enterprise Architecture is an approach that allows: planning, designing and managing the organization, guiding in the process the alignment of strategic objectives with its organizational structure and its technological infrastructure to contribute to achieve the company’s objectives.

Based on its wide experience, CINTEL has developed a model of accompaniment to the entities to develop enterprise architecture exercises and the generation of internal capacities for the development of these same exercises. Exercises that seek to satisfy needs or solve specific problems that arise in organizations, with an approach that allows understanding, planning, designing, managing and improving an organization, supported by the best practices of globally recognized EA frameworks such as TOGAF or the MRAE 3.0 of the ICT Ministry.

Why consider CINTEL as a perfect partner?

CINTEL’s approach in the development of Enterprise Architecture exercises presents the following pillars on which it bases its value offer:

  1. Experience: CINTEL’s wide knowledge in the realization of Enterprise Architecture exercises allows it to be a reference entity in the development of this subject in Colombia and therefore allows the entities to consider CINTEL’s recommendations as pillars in their digital transformation process and in the implementation of the State’s policies. CINTEL has supported more than 1600 organizations in the generation of ICT capabilities.
  2. Personalized results: CINTEL’s work is established based on the specific needs of the client, achieving personalized results according to the specific conditions of each entity. 
  3. State of the art: The accompaniment to the development of state policies in the entities considers the technologies of the fourth industrial revolution and the updated reference frameworks to propose solutions with a focus on current use and projection into the future. 
  4. Quality: The human talent specialized in union with quality processes certified for more than 15 years and a treatment of projects following PMI recommendations support the work done, achieving a consistent satisfaction in their projects, over 95%.

The main benefit for the entities is to work with an entity that has the ability to lead them to generate the capabilities required for the development of their business, identifying the gaps with respect to their objective and managing to propose a roadmap that responds to the needs of change and digital transformation that are required.

This is how we develop our model

CINTEL supports public entities, both national and territorial, in the understanding and development of Enterprise Architecture exercises, considering reference frameworks such as TOGAF and MRAE, will allow organizations:

  1. Establish a coherent set of principles, methods and models that are used in the design and implementation of an organizational structure, business processes, information systems and infrastructure.
  2. Manage a structure that is created to maintain articulation and harmony between elements such as: the business model, changes in processes, changes in the market and regulation, available resources, investment in technology (information systems and infrastructure), customer and user requirements, and existing applications, among others.
  3. Identify the alignment of the organization’s mission requirements and stakeholder expectations with the operation of the organization.
  4. Identify the strategic value of IT services with respect to business activities and processes.
  5. Consolidate the organization in reference to its governance, identifying and defining strategy and approval authorities; evolution, integration and architecture design.
  6. Generate required capabilities within the organization.

This is how we execute our methodology

The methodology used in conducting Enterprise Architecture exercises starts by identifying the baseline, considering the needs and priorities that give rise to the exercise (concerns), its evaluation with respect to the guidelines and objectives set by management, to identify existing gaps, and then propose projects and activities required to reduce or eliminate them.

Evaluating these projects with the entity and generating a roadmap that will guide the entity in its process of generating capabilities for the business. This process involves continuous interactions and synergy with the entity’s team, seeking that they appropriate the knowledge and can, in a next phase, advance with their own means in the generation of value and the satisfaction of the business needs.
