Enterprise Transformation Projects (ETP) are critical for a long-term enterprise’s sustainability progress, but such projects are chaotic, complex, and can fail. Transformation complexities are related to various concurrent factors like the use of sets of uncoordinated Architecture and Development Processes’ (ADP) related tools/environments/products, simplistic gap estimations, statuses’ evaluations, needed Polymathic skills, and many others. Therefore, there is a need to implement an In-House Implemented (IHI) concept, methodology, and framework to support ADPs and ETPs. But such IHI solutions take a long time to be finalized and this article tries to propose a realistic solution that is based on Relational DataBases (RDB) fundaments, and ADPs. ADP-based IHI solutions and concepts can be built iteratively on the existing enterprise’s legacy information system; without the need for unneeded major investments for financing external ADPs-oriented products. The proposed RBD-based ADP concept tries to show that it can support any type of ETP because the ADP is a generic concept that can be used for ETP activities like: Implementation, design, development, operations, and integration. ADPs offer the needed architecture methodologies, development concepts, information management, (re)structuring capacities, integrity checking, and mathematical constructs. The proposed ADPbETP concept adopts a Polymathic-holistic approach, which uses iterative design, change, and implementation phases. The ADPbETP uses the author’s Applied Holistic Mathematical Model (AHMM) to interface and manage the ADP (AHMM4ADP). This research paper uses the author’s transformation framework, terms, and related resources.
