Do you know what to expect from enterprise architecture?

This paper introduces an assessment model to help enterprise architecture (EA) stakeholders – including senior executives, business unit leaders, CIOs, IT executives and architecture professionals – build a common understanding about what enterprise architecture can do for them, and most importantly, what they should do to better exploit EA’s potential.

Increasing enterprise architecture’s impact has clear strategic benefits:

  • More value from technology investments
  • Better decision-making processes
  • Higher business agility
  • More mature architectures
  • Better capabilities to meet an organization’s unique needs

Learn in this paper about:

  • Key questions EA stakeholders will be able to answer based on the assessment model
  • Pitfalls most EA functions face
  • Enterprise architecture's potential and the benefits of investing in EA
  • Optimizing EA's impact in terms of scope and specialization

A retail organization case study is included.
