Why Read This Report

Poor results when working to facilitate global IT are often a result of poorly executed global EA programs, poor preparation, and/or a too-positive perception of the global business and IT environment. Forrester's Global Enterprise Architecture Self-Assessment Tool provides 31 criteria — organized into five categories — that will help you get a realistic view of whether your global EA initiative has the right foundation. The tool will help you prepare and extend an EA team as well as identify your global EA initiative's key weaknesses.
