The EA worldview, more than just the sum of the parts

Building an Enterprise Architecture means taking a holistic look at enterprise communication and systems, but what will the tools look like? Even info systems guru Leon Kappelman said he is not certain of that – or even if the concept will wind up being called EA in the long run.

But one thing is for sure. Modern companies have grown so complex and multi-dimensional that even IT can have a tough time keeping track of everything. In this environment, operating without a solid, enterprise-wide perspective greatly increases the risk of inflexibility and oversight. This, Kappelman said, is the sort of thing that drove Wall Street into recession over the past few years.

Early process modeling enabled great progress in the industrial revolution. Could the agility EA offers drive the next business revolution?
