Philip Allega is an analyst, developing research on the role of enterprise architecture (EA) and technology innovation leaders. In 2020, Mr. Allega is delivering research on the forces which are bringing clarity to the role and discipline of EA versus other interpretations of what "architecture" means in the marketplace. The actual value proposition for those who engage the discipline will be clear for both practitioners and consumers of the EA discipline. Strategic casting, innovation, planning, incubator guidance, delivery support, operational assessment, and tech debt management are but a few of the key areas the EA role and discipline will set out clearly in the coming years.
