On the EA identity crisis ..

March 15, 2011 colink

The Open Group have an interesting post on Enterprise Architecture’s Quest for its Identity

I think it’s time for EITAs to give up the EA label in favour of something that clearly reflects their technology focus *and* also emphasis *why they are there*.

One idea I have started to toss around at my day job is to re-badging our IT architecture group (which is really EITA) “technology effectiveness” to focus on our key result area: making sure that the business has the right technology to achieve its goals (strategic / planning focus), and that we as IT run that technology as efficiently and effectively as possible (operational / doing focus).   Hopefully this is tweetable enough for me to get across the next time I meet a CxO in the elevator :-)
