Case Study – Implementing Actionable Enterprise Architecture


Enterprise architecture is often charts and graphs plastered on walls in a room that nobody but the Enterprise Architects look at. They produce no value for the enterprise because they are not put in action - make better decisions and automate the enterprise. This case study provides an excellent example of: 
1. Using off the shelf tools to create an enterprise architecture
2. To run the enterprise using enterprise architecture

It shows how to:
1. Select tools for enterprise architecture planning
2. Build consensus among key stakeholders
3. Use tools to create an enterprise architecture
4. Use enterprise architecture to make better IT decisions
5. Use enterprise architecture to automate the shop

An excellent example for CIOs to follow - when it comes to enterprise architecture value it is much better to show than to tell!
