Can Agile and Enterprise Architecture (EA) work together?

A few weeks ago, we discussed bringing Agile philosophies into the culture of an EA function. However, this avoids the question of whether Agile, DevOps and related approaches can even work well with EA in the first place. After all, Agile tends to focus on rapid, incremental changes that respond to user demands, while Enterprise Architecture is all about carefully planned, large scale transformations.

This eBook will look at how the two can work together and provide some practical suggestions for integrating EA with Agile DevOps.
