Danny Greefhorst of ArchiXL has done an excellent job. With his tremendous expertise and attention to supporting the process, he helped develop a product that is highly supported and appreciated by the organisations involved. Importantly, the result does not feel like a straightjacket, but is still perceived as authoritative. This has had a positive impact on the operational strength of the reference architecture.
In the project ‘Regie in de cloud’ (‘Directing the Cloud’), executives, CIOs, directors, and architects of colleges and universities collaborated with SURF to set up a common IT strategy and the Higher Education Reference Architecture (HORA). ArchiXL supported this process.
