Best practices and tools in Enterprise Architecture are being redefined by pressure to digitally transform. This impacts both the IT landscape — where the mega trend is the shift from fixed on-premise to dynamic hybrid cloud — as well as business capability enablement, security, and governance.

It is exciting to see progressive EAs rise to the opportunity; sidelining inwards-looking adherence to decades old rigid frameworks, and embracing flexible open data modelling and democratization of ecosystem insights instead. Old Enterprise Architecture is dying, replaced by vibrant new Enterprise Architecture.

EAMS tools are increasingly addressing complex analytical challenges through data integration with physical asset repositories, application performance management tools, master data management tools, business process management tools, and other systems of record.

“EA is shifting from manual data entry and drawing to APIs connecting data dimensions that matter directly from source systems in real-time, and making this converged ecosystem data accessible by graph querying — and ultimately democratized to all. It certainly is a very exciting time to work in EA,”

- Magnus Valmot, Ardoq Executive Advisor
