The State Of Enterprise Architecture 2010: Drivers, Initiatives, And Technology Priorities

February 9, 2010


Why Read This Report

Enterprise architecture (EA) priorities for 2010 show a continued focus on helping IT reduce costs and get applications out on time and on budget. For the longer term, however, EA will look to enable key business capabilities, with a particular focus on business intelligence (BI), master data management (MDM), and collaboration. 2010 will play out as a transition year as EAs work on completing their cost-focused initiatives but also start to position their organizations to make meaningful strides forward as the economy thaws and budgets begin to free up.
