The Community Education Center (CEC) is located in Chicago, Illinois and is a non-profit organization that is dedicated to delivering secondary-education to at-risk students, as well as promoting adult literacy and community development. CEC’s management embarked on an Enterprise Architecture (EA) program as a tool to implement the goals and objectives of their strategic plan; to significantly enhance their service-delivery capability through improved integration and communication between their lines of business, and to improve and stabilize their sources of funding. CEC selected the EA3 “Cube” Framework because of its’ focus on linking client-focused services to an organization’s strategic business plan, and organizing both the in-house and outsourced IT investments to directly support business capability delivery.
