Enterprise Architecture Industry Maturity Models

In my previous post entitled “Ways to apply the Enterprise Architecture Capability Model (EACM)”, I talked about how to leverage the EACM to build a maturity model. But what about those other EA Maturity Models?

Here is a compile of the maturity models in the EA industry today:

  1. Hi Mike,
    While preparing TOGAF I have come across your blog post.
    Regarding your entry on TOGAF Maturity Model, I would say this table is an example on how to assess readiness factors for your enterprise and not a maturity model for TOGAF adoption. Indeed, in the Conclusions section of the link below, the Open Group states that a maturity model for adoption is likely to be released in next versions of TOGAF.
    Congrats for your blog – great resource for making sense of EA!
