Enterprise Architecture as Strategy

Enterprise Architecture vs Strategic Planning

Your Enterprise Architecture strategy is the defined process of translating business vision and strategy into effective enterprise change by creating, communicating and improving the key requirements, principles and models that describe the enterprise's future state and enable its evolution.

Strategic planning is an organisation's process of defining its strategy, or direction, and making decisions on allocating its resources to pursue this strategy, including its capital and people.

Enterprise Architecture Planning and Strategic Planning go hand in hand to deliver outcomes. Without both, you are less likely to succeed with either. A component of Enterprise Architecture Strategy is the Business Architecture Strategy. Business Architecture Strategy uses roadmaps and addresses any barrier to achieve the desired target state in a more practical manner.

An effective Enterprise Architecture Strategy and Business Architecture Strategy are crutial to successfully drive any transformational change at any organisation levels.
