Enterprise Architecture

Planning for the future of an organization is like urban planning. City dwellers tend to want tolerable traffic, plenty of clean, safe parks, and manageable growth. Getting there requires planning that’s comprehensive, well-understood and well-coordinated among all stakeholders. EA calls for a similar holistic approach toward the optimal future state.
