Rapid advances in information technologies and ever-changing business needs have prompted large companies to embark on enterprise-wide transformations. Today, businesses must be "hyper-connected" if they are to thrive, with information readily accessible to partners, suppliers, customers, and employees. At the same time, digitization, cloud computing, agile software development, and Web 2.0, among other developments, demand fundamental changes in business practice. These changes have a drastic effect not only on IT and business, but on processes, principles, and people. Traditional Enterprise Architecture has been unable to accommodate these trends, with 80% of initiatives failing. To better align their IT assets and business operations, companies need innovative EA strategies that are agile and responsive to changing business requirements. Enterprise Architecture Management provides the practical solutions they require, informed by real-world case studies and experts' insights. A hands-on guide to implementing EAM, this book merges top-down and pragmatic, bottom-up approaches to create successful architecture focused on business value, collaboration, innovation, and digitized business networks. Covers the latest emerging technologies affecting business practice, including digitization, cloud computing, agile software development, and Web 2.0 Focuses on the practical implementation of EAM rather than theory, with recommendations based on real-world case studies Addresses changing business demands and practices, including Enterprise 2.0, open source, global sourcing, and more Takes an innovative approach to EAM, merging standard top-down and pragmatic, bottom-up strategies, offering real solutions to businesses undergoing enterprise-wide changes
