About the ENTARCO Logo

The goals of Enterprise Architecture are to achieve enterprise alignment, integration, flexibility, and responsiveness.

The four pillars of the ENTARCO logo represent these four goals.  These four goals need to be achieved in a highly cohesive, compatible manner.  Accordingly, each pillar shares a common end (the center of the logo) to emphasize the interdependent relationship among the four Enterprise Architecture goals.

If you compromised any one of these goals, all goals will be compromised.

Renowned, innovative artist, Dick Termes designed the ENTARCO “FOUR PILLARS” logo.  Dick invented six-point spherical artwork.  You can view his art at his website: www.termespheres.com.

We are inspired by innovation, and we aspire to innovate!
