Aligning Enterprise Architecture with Business Value


The authors make the business case for enterprise architecture planning.

"Companies that do not plan an enterprise architecture will end up with an accidental architecture, thus incurring more spending than their peers not only in terms of hardware and software, but also in employee and contracting costs, along with far less service capabilities and performance...On the other hand, smart companies that regularly assess and augment their enterprise architecture in alignment with their growing business process requirements and proven technology landscape can provide strategic advantage to their decision-makers and enhance their organization’s competitiveness by improving timely, accurate, and reliable access to business information at lower costs and with more efficient computing infrastructure."
