Why Read This Report

Digital is increasingly part of products and services offerings — provoking disruption to the old ways of doing things. Companies are facing uncertain market changes and economic conditions, which requires ongoing adaptation and innovation as they continue to optimize existing operations. Well-known enterprise architecture (EA) methodologies such as TOGAF and the Zachman Framework are good for stable and slowly evolving business environments but are ill suited to provide the agility required for continuous adaptation. This report reviews some of the innovative new EA methodologies redefining EA foundations, addressing the challenges provided by Agile methods, and integrating with other well-established IT best practice frameworks such as COBIT and ITIL.
