Abstract:Organizations are facing a rapidly changing environment and an ever-increasing dependency on their IT infrastructure. Despite the organization’s best efforts to get a realistic judgment on the change projects, still, a lot of projects fail. Literature and practice show that the complexity of an organization’s architecture, their so-called “Enterprise Architecture” has a significant influence on the success of a project. However, this factor is often not formally included in the project selection process. This master thesis introduces an enterprise architecture complexity analysis based on a multi-criteria decision analysis methodology in the context of a project selection method. It presents a step-by-step guide to get from enterprise architecture and a list of projects to a prioritized list of projects based on several weighted criteria, including Enterprise Architecture Complexity. The application in practice and evaluation shows that the method has potential and could be used in practice. The enterprise architecture complexity analysis can be used separately from the rest of the model and is therefore suitable for adoption in quantitative project selection methodologies that are used by organizations.
