How to Build a Mature Enterprise Architecture Practice

The spiraling complexity of rapid transformation has forced the enterprise to find new means of adapting. Robust yet flexible architectures underpin the organization through this evolution, but too often they are started without clear direction or intent. They become a black hole of time, resources and money, consigned to the scrapheap – much like the organization that couldn’t respond to digitalization and technical advancement.
