The fusion of AI and enterprise architecture (EA) is not just a distant possibility but a rapidly unfolding reality. AI is redefining how businesses strategize, operate, and innovate, but the real question is, what does this mean for EA as we step into 2024? 

EA, traditionally the blueprint for IT infrastructure and business processes, is on the cusp of a major transformation. AI brings a range of capabilities to the table: from predicting market trends to optimizing operations and enhancing decision-making processes. But how are these capabilities translating into tangible EA strategies? 

A recent report from Gartner®, ‘Infographic: Use Case Prism for AI-Assisted Enterprise Architecture Activities’, provides a compelling answer. It reveals 20 AI use cases that are reshaping the EA landscape. Imagine having the power to optimize your business and IT processes, or to align your IT strategy seamlessly with your business goals, all through AI-driven insights. This is the reality of today's AI-integrated EA. 

The Gartner® insights don’t stop there. They go beyond listing AI applications and provide a strategic matrix of business value versus feasibility. This can be a helpful tool for EA leaders and strategists who need to make informed decisions about where and how to integrate AI into their EA practices

As we look towards 2024, the integration of AI into EA is more than just a trend; it's a necessity for staying competitive and agile in a rapidly changing digital landscape. Those who fail to adapt may well be left behind.
