Supportive PMO

The Government-Wide Enterprise Architecture Framework (GWEA) is legislated by the Public Service Act (PSA) and Public Service Regulations (PSR) via DPSA to define the minimum standard by which to use an Enterprise Architecture (EA) approach to develop and construct National and Departmental ICT Plans and Blueprints in the Government of South Africa.

The objectives and benefits of GWEA are:

  • Enable the leveraging of IT as a strategic asset
  • Provide enhanced information that is available on demand
  • Reduce costs associated with application sprawl and complexity
  • To use EA as a means to fully exploit available technologies by enabling and empowering the business to acquire best-fit platforms

Adapt IT uses the Qualiware platform as a proven enabler and accelerator in implementing GWEA to leverage the benefits of implementation, and to ensure compliance with the Public Service Act and Public Service Regulations
