Enterprise architecture (EA) is a strategic planning process that integrates business and IT strategy to improve both financial efficiency and business effectiveness. Done right, it can be a powerful mechanism for advancing the business strategy of enterprises.
Organizations that support business architecture as an integral part of EA have a significantly higher ability to execute on their business strategy, because they have a clear understanding of the strategy and its impact on business and IT, and guidance to drive delivery.
Roadmaps can be effective diagnostic deliverables for supporting analysis, relevant actionable deliverables for enacting a decision or useful communications mechanisms for ensuring that execution achieves the right business outcomes. Successful roadmaps require EA to leverage both art and social science to ensure the right message is clear and compelling.View Now
