Implementation of the IT architecture and portfolio management

Federal Administration’s ICT reorganisation (today Chancellery – Digital Transformation and ICT Steering Sector)

Key facts

Corporate architecture is a practice which aims to guide organisations towards the changes required in order to realise their strategies. It allows the existing and desired status of work and IT issues to be described, as well as the required transitional stages. Its controlled implementation of synergies and the elimination of undesirable duplications means it can help reduce expenditure charged to federal IT. In the 2018 fiscal plan, this expenditure exceeds CHF 1 billion. By reusing existing components, corporate architecture can also help keep the complexity of platforms and IT projects under control. This practice therefore acts as an aid in the planning for sustainable federal IT.
