The Federal agency Chief Information Officer (CIO) realized that the agency needed to “operationalize” its use of Enterprise Architecture to actively drive IT investment decisions. BRMi was awarded a contract in 2011 to provide Enterprise Architecture & Business Modernization Support Services. As part of this initiative, the BRMi team established effective EA functions, updated relevant EA documents and standards, developed the agency’s IT Strategic Plan and Enterprise Cloud Computing Strategy, modified internal EA processes, and updated modernization activities. Additionally, BRMi provided critical architecture services to develop actionable segment architectures. Through these successful projects, BRMi has received recognition from Gartner regarding the Enterprise Cloud Computing Strategy and the CIO who distributed the IT Security Architectural Analysis to other government agencies to be used as an example.
