Use The Right Set Of Criteria When Selecting An Enterprise Architecture Tool
EA Tool Value Comes From Supporting EA Stakeholders
October 24, 2008
Why Read This Report
Most enterprise architects are still using criteria such as price, ease of use, or metamodel customization to differentiate enterprise architecture (EA) tools. While these criteria are useful, they are not the ones that will help you show the real value of EA tools for your enterprise. For our 2008 reassessment of EA tools, Forrester updated the criteria that we developed in early 2007, reflecting EA tool trends toward both more strategic and more pragmatic functionalities. Enterprise architects can use this new set of criteria to understand how these features will help their EA stakeholders achieve their objectives.
