When it comes to technology, the evolutionary process never sleeps. Just look at Enterprise Architecture (EA). What started in corporate IT departments as a cutting-edge approach to managing an increasingly large and complex computing environment is now a prerequisite to success. Any organization serious about its future invests time and money in developing, implementing and actively managing their EA framework. Why? Because EA is the great translator. It allows all of a company’s various departments – from marketing and finance to the supply chain and risk management – to make sense of each other. It ensures that everybody is on the same page, speaking the same language. And that makes EA a critical part of any company’s strategy.
