Why Read This Report

Many enterprise architecture (EA) teams strive to be more business-focused and strategically engaged — but getting there isn't easy. It may require a resetting of stakeholder perceptions as well as a transformation of the EA practice. EA teams will need to define clear services, develop appropriate skills, and become an integral part of planning processes that they may be outside of today. They must develop a strategy for all the necessary changes, from shifts in stakeholders' expectations to maturity in appropriate capabilities. This is an update of a previously published report; Forrester reviews and revises it periodically for continued relevance and accuracy. We are now updating it to reflect our current thinking on the most effective method for developing an EA program strategy.
