Impacts and Recommendations

  • Implementing EA for the first time provides the opportunity for SMBs in Japan to focus EA on business outcomes and vision
  • An overfocus on IT by large organizations in Japan will cause them to struggle to increase their maturity and deliver demonstrable business value
  • Larger organizations have looked to their vendors or outsourcers to provide EA, but they must become less reliant on external parties when looking to innovate their IT systems
