EBSCO Information Services (EBSCO) is the leading provider of premium information, research databases, e-journals, magazine subscriptions, e-books and discovery services to libraries worldwide.
As the largest division of EBSCO Industries, Inc., the fast growth of EBSCO Information Services challenged its enterprise architects to align an increasingly complex IT ecosystem. Information remained siloed within departments and resources were fragmented. EBSCO needed to connect all its relevant Enterprise Architecture (EA) information into a meaningful and interactive map that promised to align the business units and optimize their workflow.
In a short span of 18 months, EBSCO Information Services realized a number of benefits. EBSCO now has a single source of truth with approximately 5,000 fact sheets replete with an estimated 19,000 cross linkages. This has provided increased visibility while aligning all the business units with the IT landscape. In addition, teams now have a stronger sense of ownership for the company’s overall IT transformation.
