Our approach, while informed by your strategic organisational goals, is to make defined incremental steps in evolving your architecture capability.

Short-term successes help projects gain acceptance from the business and IT communities. The implementation of each architecture process builds on previous ones and steadily develops greater maturity and value.

Throughout the course of an engagement we work with our clients to monitor effectiveness and progress to ensure value is being delivered at every stage.

  • Working with you from the outset to carefully assess and target your specific needs and priorities
  • Providing consultants of the highest calibre, all of whom are highly experienced, broadly qualified, successful executives and professionals
  • Customizing a service that will best meet your desired outcomes through a combination of our comprehensive service delivery modes

eBreez utilises a proven 4-phase methodology to deliver ESA services to our clients:

  • Project Initiation - conducted at the onset of the project to confirm what is expected, delivery timing and key stakeholder participation required
  • Current State Assessment - analysis of the current situation including an inventory of existing architecture components and a SWOT assessment of the current environment.
  • Target State Development – identification of future requirements to enable design of the capability required to support future needs.
  • Transition Action Plan - Development of a transition plan, with a two to three year outlook, that will enable the organisation to transition from the current state to the agreed target state, based on gaps identified, business priorities and dependencies

The key philosophies underpinning the approach include:

  • Business Driven IT Solutions : Recommended solutions are linked to the business needs
  • Architectural Approach : Shifting from independent systems planning and delivery to integrated systems planning and delivery
  • Collaborative/Mentoring Approach : We will work together with an organisation’s resources to develop internal skills - we will provide
  • processes and techniques which can be used in the ongoing maintenance of the strategy
  • Flexible Approach : Tailored to meet specific business requirements
  • Evolutionary Approach: A transition program to progressively roll-out new initiatives
