Enterprise-architecture best practices for digital transformation via @McKinsey

Focusing on business processes can lead companies to end up with multiple systems that perform similar functions, such as customer-relationship management. Concentrating too much on technology can cause EA teams to organize their work around building applications rather than enabling the business.

WHY IT MATTERS: this article relates to a recent post on EA tools. The conclusion is clear: EA should focus on delivering what business needs instead of pushing for technology infrastructure. Instead of having milestones related to building single sign on or identity management solutions, align roadmap to the delivery of employee self-service portal for HR or supplier B2B eCommerce for supply chain BU. Basically align the EA roadmap on the business priorities.
