Enterprise Architecture Planning

TMR Enterprise Architecture consultants are knowledgeable in the Zachman, FEAF, TEAF, DoDAF architectures and base their planning activities on the Spewak Enterprise Architecture Planning (EAP) methodology. TMR recommends, among other things, strategy prioritization, integration, and alignment, during every phase of the requirements capturing process.

Effective Enterprise Architecture planning for technological growth must move rapidly, produce clear output, and provide a context from which more detailed planning evolves. TMR utilizes the following successful practices to accomplish this:


  • Establish a visible EA Program Management structure
