Enterprise architecture (EA) can potentially promote a common business vision within your organization, provide guidance to improve both business and IT decision making, and improve IT efficiencies. Unfortunately many EA teams struggle to provide these benefits, often because they are perceived as ivory tower or being too difficult to work with.
The adoption of disciplined agile and lean strategies that are based on collaboration, enablement, and streamlining the flow of work are the keys to EA success. Disciplined strategies that produce light-weight, yet still sufficient, artifacts are the key to your success. This presentation explores both the success factors and failure factors surrounding EA, pragmatic strategies for a lean/agile approach to EA, and how EA is supported and enhanced by the Disciplined Agile framework. This isn’t your grandfather’s EA strategy.
