Launching an Enterprise Architecture Program within State, Local, Municipal Organizations

When
launching a formal EA program, Government organizations often begin by
socializing the overall benefits of EA and developing an EA Charter and
Plan.  However, while both of these are valuable, they are more useful
as part of after-the-fact documentation and communication plans.  Having
worked with a broad spectrum of state, local and municipal government organizations across the US and Canada, our team, Oracle’s Public Sector Enterprise Strategy Team (EST), has found
that the first and primary focus in launching an EA program should be
on how to meaningfully engage top business leaders and other
stakeholders to discover their needs, identify what would bring the most
value to the organization, and obtain their buy-in and support for EA
as a key enabler in helping the organization achieve its mission
objectives.
