Information System Architecture Metrics: An Enterprise Engineering Evaluation Approach

Although, some important technological developments have been achieved during last decade, information systems still do not answer efficiently enough to the continuous demands that organisations are facing - causing a non-alignment between business and Information Technologies (IT) and therefore reducing organisation competitive abilities. This paper proposes sixteen metrics for the Information System Architecture (ISA) evaluation, supported in an ISA modelling framework. The major goal of the metrics proposed is to assist the architect previewing the impact of his/her ISA design choices on the non-functional qualities of the Enterprise Information System (EIS), ensuring EIS better align with business needs.
