Just as the futurists have been predicting for many years, the information revolution has become a reality. Technology has penetrated every aspect of the Enterprise and its exploitation has impacted the very structure of many industries. The world has become a global, electronic marketplace. Enterprises are beginning to perceive the significance of process ... process that knows no organisational boundaries, inside or outside of the Enterprise itself. Organisational hierarchies are becoming obsolete as power is clearly shifting from the top to the bottom and then beyond the enterprise. Technology innovation proceeds at blinding rates. Enterprises are under heavy stress as global economies begin to react to the early phases of the Information Age.
Enterprise Architecture is fundamental for enabling an enterprise to assimilate internal changes in response to the external dynamics and uncertainties of the information age environment. It not only constitutes a baseline for managing change, but also provides the mechanism by which the reality of the enterprise and its systems can be aligned with management intentions.
