EnterpriseArchitectureBusiness- and Enterprise Architecture is the fundamental platform for successful execution of business vision and strategy, and the key enabler for a business ability to evolve and prosper over time.

All businesses operate under a set of operational constraints that are defined by their business- and enterprise architecture. However, often the business- and enterprise architecture has not been sufficiently planned, managed - or even aligned with the business strategy and goals. The result will be that the business finds itself unable to execute on its strategy and attain its goals, often experiencing lack of profitability, lack of customer satisfaction, increasing cost base that escalates, and similar sympthoms. On the strategic level, businesses may find themselves unable to execute on strategic initiatives like horizontal expansion into new markets, succesfull consolidation after merger or aquisition of another company,and similar.

The possible situations and sympthoms are many, but the alignment between business and technology sits at the core and is manifested through the business- and enterprise architecture.

Furthermore, when the business is exposed to change, either driven internally or externally, the business- and enterprise architecture will determine the business ability to react and respond to the change.

Successfully planning and implementing a foundation for business execution that enables a highly profitable and competitive business, requires expert knowledge within both the business domain and the technology domain. Also, creating a foundation for business execution that is agile enough to sustain the strategic scenarios that the business will have to respond to in the future, thus protecting investments and competitive advantages, requires a deep understanding of the strategic position of the company and the requirements this puts to the business- and enterprise architecture.
