Why Read This Report

As firms become more customer obsessed, the enterprise architecture (EA) mandate becomes richer and more complex — and that changes the work the EA ecosystem must do. To see how the work of EA will evolve over the next five years, one must look at leading EA pros today, such as the winners of the Forrester/InfoWorld Enterprise Architecture Awards. The key theme? EA's value proposition shifts from doing architecture to delivering value. This is an update of a previously published report; Forrester reviews and revises it periodically for continued relevance and accuracy, most recently to reflect our current thinking on future methods for engaging with business stakeholders.
