How was Training?


“Useful insight to EA and the benefits it could bring.” - Technical Consultant, Experian, UK, Mar 2013

Recommend PEAF?


“Yes - Although I have not practiced it, but this appears to me a well thought out framework and process to be a strong alternative to other frameworks such as TOGAF. ” - IT EA Manager, Los Angeles World Airports, USA, May 2010

Ovum Study

You can also see the results from the Ovum 2012 Study which finds that PEAF and TOGAF share the top-spot for the EA frameworks that respondents most frequently mention here  (Notwithstanding the fact that TOGAF is NOT an EA framework of course!)

PEAF is being used at Penn State University as part of their EA Centre of Excellence

You can see the press release here.

This is an email I received regarding an Enterprise that is utliising PEAF

[COMPANY_X] have used Gartner for years but got little or no value.

Recently Gartner has noticed a little more activity from [COMPANY_X], but no real need for Gartner Analyst support.

As a matter of fact, [PERSON_FROM_COMPANY_X] told Gartner that he had a more pragmatic approach to EA that was bringing a lot of success.

So [SOMEONE_FROM GARTNER] came in and listened to [PERSON_FROM_COMPANY_X].

[SOMEONE_FROM GARTNER] were blown away with the work that [PERSON_FROM_PEAF_CONSULTANCY] had done, and the impact that EA was starting to have.

In addition, the Gartner executive sales VP came to talk to the CIO of [COMPANY_X], who commented that “we are now deploying PEAF and even starting to train our staff”.

[PERSON_FROM GARTNER] was really impressed by the framework.
