Survey says..... Enterprise Architecture is More Important

A recently released survey done by Bangalore-based Infosys Technologies Limited highlighted the continued, and even increasing, importance of Enterprise Architecture.

 

The company's third annual survey on Enterprise Architecture, which polled more than 200 of its client companies, showed that companies are increasingly using enterprise architecture to enable business transformation efforts, including efforts that (naturally) may involved global sourcing.

 

In fact, the survey showed an increase of 6% in the number of respondents (42%) who noted that enterprise architects have an active role in strategic planning in their organizations. It also showed a significant increase in the number of respondents who were leveraging the metrics obtained through enterprise architecture and Infosys solutions, 44% compared to last year's 29%.

 

While the survey was limited to Infosys customers, and is obviously designed to highlight the benefits that a global sourcing company like Infosys can provide, I believe it nevertheless highlights the growing importance of the need for competitive companies to have a solid understanding of their enterprise architecture and be able to use leverage it through increased metrics and more efficient processes.
