Metropolia University of Applied Sciences started to renovate Enterprise Architecture on 2010. The renovation process ended up to be a complete ecosystem for Higher Educational Institutions Today we are extending the ecosystem with additional services for students and student administration. To do this, we have started two projects that are implemented by using agile development methods. This paper explains the background of our ecosystem as well as the challenges in building and extending the ecosystem. One of the challenges that we have encountered is combining traditional project methods with agile methods and also doing this simultaneously in two separate projects. We also describe the methods that we have used to build our ecosystem as well as tools to manage and visualize the overall progress of the extension in our case projects.
