As emerging technologies continue to fast-track digital transformation, collaboration between business and information technology (IT) leadership has become a critical component for any successful company. Enter enterprise architecture (EA), whose practice is integral toward aligning an organization’s strategic goals with the technical initiatives required to achieve them. Gartner, Inc. predicts that, by 2022, 80% of businesses will take a collaborative approach to EA.

Its measurable impacts benefit financial, security, operations, and decision-making outcomes, hastening growth while at the same time reducing complexity. It provides more visibility for IT leadership, raising the profile of all professionals working with enterprise technology. But, as with any significant undertaking, there can be stumbling blocks along the way – especially during the early stages.
