Using Enterprise Architecture to Quantify the Benefits of Information Technology Projects

 This paper presents a "structured" framework to quantify the "overall financial impact of an IT project," based upon enterprise architecture planning.

This structured approach has been developed by the Logistics Management Institute to calculate the return on investment of an information technology investment.

"Our method for calculating the dollar value of a project’s benefits is a structured approach to gathering cost driver data, identifying hard and soft benefits, and calculating the overall financial impact of an IT project. In short, LMI’s method gives a more complete picture of the benefits of a project. And it can be adapted to meet the needs of a wide variety of organizations."
