2012 EA Award Winners: Business-Focused, Strategic And Pragmatic

In Forrester’s EA Practice Playbook, we describe high performance enterprise architecture programs as ‘business-focused, strategic and pragmatic”. They are business-focused so that the direction and guidance EA provides has clear business relevance and value. They are strategic because the greatest value EA brings is to help their business to achieve their business strategies. They are pragmatic because, well, the path to strategy is never straight, and EA teams who aren’t agile in their approach get pushed aside.
