Enterprise Business Architecture
Business Architecture is the bridge between the enterprise strategy and the architectures that describe the detailed IT elements that are needed to deliver that strategy.
It is the first step in creating an Enterprise Architecture and towards minimising the total lifetime cost of ownership of an enterprise's IT systems.
The enterprise architecture is a description of the IT strategy and drives its delivery. But that presents challenges of communication, stakeholder management and the ever-present pressure to deliver something immediately for the minimum immediate cost.
Effective communication and governance of the IT strategy are essential if it is to be realised. As is the identification of the true tactical steps towards strategic delivery.
