Mainline Expands Enterprise Architecture Capabilities with iEAi Certified Architects

Tallahassee, Fla. – May 3, 2013 – Mainline Information Systems® today announced that it has the largest number of accreditations from the International Enterprise Architect Institute, Inc. (iEAi) of any Value Added Reseller (VAR) in the United States after 10 of its solution architects recently achieved certification. The iEAi is a vendor- and technology-neutral consortium focused on strengthening the enterprise architecture discipline.

“All too often resellers are focused on the transaction, regardless of the customer’s problem and desired outcome,” said Jeff Dobbelaere, vice president of technical sales support for Mainline. “Only when the enterprise is fully understood can technology be correctly applied to ensure a customer’s needs are being satisfied.

“Mainline’s investment in certified enterprise architects reflects our commitment to provide the best resources to our clients and continuing education to our employees,” added Dobbelaere. “Our team has been trained to look at a customer’s environment from the perspective of the business requirements and to have more meaningful conversations about ways to design their business processes for efficiency and competitiveness.”

“Our clients demand alignment from IT to enable the organization to adapt rapidly to their changing and highly competitive environment,” said Ritchie Schlette, managing principal and certified enterprise architect for Mainline. “Mainline uses an Enterprise Architecture framework based on EA3 developed by Dr. Scott Bernard. This framework and its methods are a quintessential cornerstone to success because it facilitates the alignment of the client’s technology, business and strategy.”
