The accelerating pace of change drives businesses to streamline processes, exploit technology, and leverage information to greater advantage.
Executives are under increasing pressure to drive operational excellence and improve business agility. They face a seemingly impossible task to maximize investments, preserve capital, and minimize risks while creating innovation, satisfying customers, beating competition, and even transforming the business.
Successful executives turn to Enterprise Architecture to deliver business agility in the face of change. Operating at the nexus of business and technology, Enterprise Architecture plans for the growth and evolution of the enterprise. It optimizes IT investment, and guides IT operation, management, and governance activities.
Enterprise Architecture guidance unifies IT efforts to cooperatively support enterprise evolution to the desired future state. Each business has a business strategy even if it is not formalized. It may be explicit or implicit, and may be communicated in varying degrees of detail. Enterprise Architecture demonstrates its value through IT alignment with the business vision and strategy. It has the greatest impact on a company’s information systems, performance, security, and total cost of ownership (TCO).
