Why Read This
Forrester receives many inquiries from enterprise architecture (EA) leaders seeking information about tools for their EA practice. These inquiries run the gamut from simple questions about "who's out there" to more in-depth vendor comparisons. But inevitably, these questions boil down to the fact that EA practice leaders have a wide range of needs to satisfy with these tools, and they are unsure whether a tool will address their challenges or whether investment in any tool is worthwhile. In this report, we provide a high-level overview of the market as well as the vendors and trends shaping the market. This report, part of the EA practice playbook, should serve as the first step into the EA tools and technologies market for all interested parties.
