Enterprise Architecture Adoption and Best Practices 2014

April, 2014


The term “enterprise architecture” has been around since at least 1982, but the practice today is not widely adopted. Only about half of all IT organizations are developing and maintaining an enterprise architecture. Interest, however, is high and the practice is growing. In this study, we will examine how many organizations have adopted enterprise architecture, how many adopters have fully embraced the practice, and how many organizations are likely to adopt the practice in the future. We conclude with an assessment of the various approaches to enterprise architecture and recommendations on best practices. (12 pp., 4 fig.)
