Why Read This Report

The demand for exceptional digital and customer experiences is exposing the constraints of existing technology organization practices. The people, processes, governance structures, and technology of the technology organization must change to drive and enable business success.

This report outlines three enterprise architecture (EA) trends that are helping CIOs successfully drive strategic IT transformation.
