Introduction 1st metaphor - EA as an Architecture Toolkit Origins of EA ? 2nd metaphor - EA as an Operational Scoreboard What is EA ? 3rd metaphor - EA as a Strategic Scoreboard Sumup of EA research opportunitiesMotivation behind EA EA has been rstly thought by Zachman to address two problems (in 1987) : System complexity : organisations were spending enormous budgets in IT (high cap-ex / op-ex) Poor business alignement : organisations were nding it more dicult to keep IT systems alignes with business model Basically enterprise are looking for more agility, high prols, lower risk, more satised senior management, and More cost and less value problem recognised 24 years ago, but have today reached a crisis point.

EAs original promise was its ability to provide future safe guidance given the desires and vision of an organisations senior leadership team. As IT roles shift away from technology management to enterprise management, EA is suited to bring clarity to these blurred boundaries, and, by 2015, increased adoption of EA processes and uses by business will further ITs alignment with the organisations culture, future-state vision and delivery of business value outcomes.
