  4. 4. (because technology is an enabler that makes the enterprise possible) “It’s not not about the technology” (Andrew McAfee) but technology is only a means; whereas enterprise is the ends - don’t mix them up! Enterprise-architecture addresses common themes that must pervade through every part of the enterprise.
