 The Selection Committee, made up of FEAC Institute Faculty,  Zachman International Leadership and invited industry professionals in “blind evaluations,” will evaluate all submittals for the awards to determine if it has:

  • Been implemented with demonstrated results and are actively IN USE (prototypes and pilot projects will not be accepted)
  • Solved major business integration problems and/or streamlined processes with measurable outcome results
  • Increased productivity and/or saved resources (time, funding, staffing, etc.), coupled to business cases (or Exhibit 300, as applicable)
  • Improved the quality, timeliness, and accuracy of services, as applied to a specific government or industry enterprise’s business or mission
  • Realized organization-wide results (beyond a limited user group)
  • There were more enterprise-wide business and operational focused results beyond better IT or software architectures
  • EA artifacts showing points of integration and tie into the business case narrative are given more weight in evaluation than those that do not. 

Note:  Cloud, Data Center and SOA submissions will only be considered as contextually presented in HOW it used the EA discipline to plan for enterprise transition.

The Selection Committee will NOT consider software implementation projects or software architectures NOT demonstrably driven from EA context. The Committee will not consider technology upgrades, cloud migrations or other technology implementations outside the context of specific business mission outcome results determined using the EA discipline.  All EA award candidates must truly encompass a defined complex project using the EA discipline with an emphasis on meeting business, agency or mission outcomes.

The Excellence in Enterprise Architecture Awards will be presented on Monday, November 14, 2016.
