Four myths that hide the true value from Enterprise Architecture!
I recently wrote about four EA Myths on The Cutter Blog.
These four myths are related to my research: “How do we demonstrate the value of EA or justify architectural overhead?” I believe that by far the biggest problem in demonstrating the value of EA is a mind-set that perpetuates certain misconceptions! In brief these four myths are that:
- EA is optional. It isn’t!
- EA is no different than many other disciplines. It actually has quite distinct characteristics!
- Calling yourself an enterprise architect is enough. No! You have to think like one too!
- EA only produces value when a new architectural state is implemented and operational. It actually delivers value throughout the strategy/execution cycle.
