Architecture benchmarks defined
Responding to agency requests, the General Accounting Office has updated its guide on enterprise architectures with expanded metrics to measure how well an agency succeeds in implementation.
The update, "Information Technology: A Framework for Assessing and Improving Enterprise Architecture Management," provides benchmarking tools for agencies to plan and measure their efforts in developing enterprise architectures. It also provides guidelines for the Office of Management and Budget to evaluate agency efforts.
The report was updated using feedback from the release of the first version, published February 2002 and titled, "Information Technology: Enterprise Architecture Use Across the Federal Government Can Be Improved."
