Why Read This
Interest in business architecture (BA) has remained high over the past three years, but progress has been limited. In conducting Forrester's Q2 2011 Global Current State Of Business Architecture Online Survey, we discovered that while 100% of surveyed respondents believe that business architecture is important, only slightly more than half have an active initiative. Architects report a strong belief that business architecture is more about the business than IT and are highly optimistic in their ability to create a business architecture but at the same time struggle with capturing business leaders' interest. This report provides a detailed look at where the practice of business architecture is today and makes recommendations on how to move business architecture forward.
