For Enterprise Architecture Professionals

Assessing Both The Maturity And Fit Of Your EA Program

    Why Read This Report

    Enterprise architecture (EA) program leaders often ask how well they're doing, specifically with regard to EA program maturity. When the program isn't making the impact they want, or it's falling short of the expectations of their sponsors, they feel the pressure for change. When this occurs, EA leaders reach for maturity models. But maturity models can easily mislead those who put effort into using them. Why? Because they ignore the fit of the EA program with the larger business and technology organization that EA is part of — and both fit and maturity are necessary for EA programs to succeed. This EA practice playbook report provides EA leaders with an approach to evaluate both the fit and the maturity of their EA program, the first step in planning improvements. This is an update of a previously published report; Forrester reviews and revises it periodically for continued relevance and accuracy. We have substantially revised this edition to factor in new ideas on EA maturity.
