Why Read This Report

Enterprise architects carry the heavy responsibility of planning for elaborate implementations of complex technology. They must weigh the implications of the plans for all of the related architecture domains — business, information, application, and technology architecture — to ensure synergy, coherence, straightforward integration, and successful business outcomes. But the current sense of urgency to develop and implement an information strategy and architecture puts extreme pressure on architects to provide solutions for technology gaps in information access and analytical capabilities. This report profiles information management and consumption technology to guide enterprise architecture (EA) professionals in acting to connect technology solutions to business needs and address capability gaps. This is an update of a previously published report; Forrester reviews and updates it periodically for relevance and accuracy, most recently in December 2014.
