Enterprise Architecture Solutions Ltd (EAS), sole sponsor of the Essential Project and developer of the Essential Architecture Manager software, has been identified by Forrester Research as one of the ten most significant providers of enterprise architecture management suites (EAMS). In this year’s Forrester Wave™ covering EAMS, the research firm has reported extensively on those selected software providers based on their breadth of EA coverage (business/technology orientation and strategy/projects focus), as well as on their ability to serve four common EA objectives:
- Manage cost and complexity
- Ensure high-quality and efficient business solutions
- Set technology strategy, innovate and govern
- Business/IT planning and alignment
Based on a thorough evaluation of the Essential Architecture Manager Version 4, Forrester rated EAS as a “strong performer”, which they define as being able to demonstrate strong functionality in supporting most or all EA objectives.
