How To Deliver Enterprise Architecture Value Early — CIO Dashboard
How to demonstrate the value of enterprise architecture is a constant question we get from our clients.  In fact, a more basic question might be “what is the business value of EA?”  We strongly believe that EA should be the way that a business connects its strategy to its technology investment plan – through the use of business capabilities .  As good as that might sound in concept, the hard work is in breaking organizational myths and stereotypes .

in Boston, we’ve assembled a panel this week to delve into the advancing role and powerful potential for enterprise architecture (EA).

There are several enterprise frameworks and methodologies that have been developed for the EITA (or EISA) and are targeted at the alignment of IT assets and capabilities with the enterprise's mission ...
