Why Read This Report

Empowered business leaders are generating high levels of grass-roots technology-based innovation. IT organizations have historically applied standardization and control to minimize cost and boost reliability. But IT's approach is driving many business innovators to experiment and implement new ideas without IT's involvement. EA (enterprise architecture) can head off the impending collision of these two worlds with architecture zoning, which provides flexibility where needed balanced with standardization where required. An innovation zone provides business and IT innovators alike a proving ground for their ideas, accelerating both the testing and implementation of important business innovations.
