What is the future of enterprise architects and enterprise architecture?

The enterprise architect role will change over time, just like everything else, but it will still have its place in organizations in the future. I have been pinged for so many positions since the pandemic began because every company was suddenly working remotely and didn’t know where their assets were or how they could start getting visibility. When something goes wrong, that’s when folks say, “Where is my architect?” Until something goes wrong, nobody cares about architecture. But the time for enterprise architects has never been as good as it is right now. Even smaller companies that are pre-IPO are looking for chief enterprise architects. The EA is at the center of planning, investment strategy, M&A, and Ventures. They play an active part in three-year planning, and provide both transparency and traceability from why, to what, to how.
