Performance is a key driver of Enterprise Architecture efforts within organizations of varying sizes. In order to use this driver, it is important to determine quantifiable, outcome-based metrics that can be used to measure and track progress towards a “target” vision. These metrics must be aligned throughout all layers of the EA, thereby creating a “Line of Sight” from business goals to related services and enabling technology. Performance measurements must be aligned to strategic goals and mission needs, and must work seamlessly to drive technical solutions – from inputs to outputs to outcomes.
