Why Read This Report
Forrester's "State Of EA 2010" report shows consistent themes and incremental progress by the enterprise architecture (EA) function in most firms. EA leaders are part of senior IT management and have the CIO's active support, but they struggle with awareness and support from other parts of IT and the business. Better strategic planning is the primary driver for EA programs, with better communications, increased involvement with projects, and initiating business and information architecture programs as the primary means to do so. When looking at their technology landscape, EAs see the greatest change in collaboration, content, and all things applications.
