Services for the Enterprise

CC&C has been helping the largest companies get architecture right for more than 15 years.

As business model disruption and digital transformation drive demand for higher skill levels and deeper insight, both internal and external IT leadership teams must respond with new ways of working that include agile delivery of well-governed solutions.

We provide training and advisory services to IT service providers and enterprise IT leaders, to help them succeed, with three entry points:

Enterprise Architecture Transformation

We specialize in helping EA teams acquire the skills needed to win. CC&C has been a leader in helping companies get EA right for more than 15 years.

EA transformation clients have included Fortune 100 companies in Asia Pacific, North America and Europe. The starting point is usually:

  • Organisations who want to rationalise their Enterprise Architecture function but don’t know where to start
  • Organisations going through business mergers, acquisitions or rationalisation, that need strong EA capabilities
  • Internal Architecture groups who need to combine strategic positioning of EA with some quick wins that deliver value now

How Do We Do It?


A disciplined, agile Enterprise Architecture team is essential. How does this work? How can you organise to support successful outcomes? As Zachman says: “bit by bit, to an excruciating level of detail.”

We take the best that each EA methodology / tool offers, using artifacts selected from the architectural continuum – from your legacy systems, from vendor architectures, from your vertical industry – and global best practices in Enterprise Architecture implementation.

This is the input data for CC&C’s proven eight-step methodology, which is augmented by ready-made templates, input/output check lists, business scenarios, and metrics.

How Long Does It Take?


We stay as long as your team needs us. For an average medium to large organisation, it takes about 100 days from A to Z.

IT Transformation


IT Transformation is the work needed to change the ways of working in IT, especially with regard to methodology, organisation, value management and tooling.

CC&C uses The Open Group’s evolving IT4IT standard as a starting point for IT Transformation. IT4IT provides the semantic context for a discussion of the end-to-end processes in a large IT organisation.
In our IT Transformation practice we focus on all three aspects of how the IT organisation is managed and measured, with the main focus on the Business Architecture for Enterprise IT.

Our IT Transformation practitioners have recent experience in some of the world’s largest enterprises. We are ready to continue this work with your organisation.

Open standards and open architectures enable IT Transformation programs that are vendor-neutral and driven by business value.

IT4IT plays in three spaces: Enterprise IT Operating Model (supports Digital Transformation), Business Architecture for Enterprise IT (supports IT Transformation) and Tool Interoperability (supports Infrastructure efficiency).

Digital Transformation


Unlike IT Transformation, which changes the factory but not the product, Digital Transformation changes the whole business model.

Technological disruption is passing through business sectors and government functions like the standing wave of a tsunami, challenging all comers to adapt, catch up, or die.

Our Digital Transformation practitioners focus on helping enterprises re-imagine themselves, integrating new technology into core business operations.
