Enterprise Architecture & its importance in IT Strategy

In the recent times I have been challenged multiple times to justify the above question and how to measure this for an enterprise? Let us try to understand the function of subject “Enterprise Architecture(EA)”, the term “Architecture” has been most loosely used these days in our IT world. Probably everyone today maps architecture to “Application Architecture”, “Solution Architecture” or “Technical Architecture”, but all these are sub-functions of the EA. It is more logical to understand and map EA from “Top down” rather than “Bottom Up” perspective.Building an enterprise is more of a town planning activity rather than house planning activity.

EA evolves for organization if it has the clear “IT Strategy” and where it wants to go using it, this requires both efficient planning & steady actions.
