Why Read This Report

Large enterprises often struggle with managing changes to multiple projects and properly tracking the impact of changes across initiatives. Enterprise architects in such environments find the deck is stacked against them when they want to introduce design changes to improve projects' alignment with strategy, as doing this compounds the already-existing change management problem. One potential solution is emerging: using tools that simultaneously offer architecture and requirements management. These tools are particularly suited to enterprises that have strategic, complex, custom-coded applications cores. Forrester encourages enterprise architects to take a look but not to oversell these solutions internally, as the promised benefits will come from the tools' support of both EA and development governance processes, but the available tools do not yet support these processes correctly.
