Hybrid IT or Cloud Initiative – a Perfect Enterprise Architecture Maturation Opportunity

All too often in the growth and maturation of Enterprise
Architecture initiatives, the effort stalls or is delayed due to lack of “applied
traction”. By this, I mean the EA
activities – whether targeted towards compliance, risk mitigation or value
opportunity propositions – may not be attached to measurable, active, visible
projects that could advance and prove the value of EA. EA doesn’t work by itself, in a vacuum,
without collaborative engagement and a means of proving usefulness. A critical
vehicle to this proof is successful orchestration and use of assets and investment
resources to meet a high-profile business objective – i.e. a successful
project.
