Assessing Project Compliance with Enterprise Architecture

This article focuses on how to assess projects implementing business processes and IT systems on compliance with an Enterprise Architecture that provides constraints and high-level solutions.

First, the core elements of Enterprise Architecture compliance testing are presented. Second, we discuss the testing process and four types of compliance checks (correctness check, justification check, consistency check and completeness check). Finally, an empirical case is reported in which a real-life project has been tested on conformance. The results show that our approach works. Furthermore, to increase the objectivity of compliance testing, operationalization of EA prescriptions is recommended.
