  1. Road maps (technology, process, people road maps. Study the maturity,adoption and business application of specific technologies , processes )
  2. Application portfolio management (includes management of “AS IS” information (application, infrastructure, information, business, finance, organization),assessment and recommendation to eliminate over laps)
  3. Scenario Planning (what if analysis for an organization)
  4. Standards & policies (Technology, processes, products,patterns)

  1. In my experience many enterprise architecture deliverables
    become what I would call “architectural waste”, meaning they are
    not valuable because they are not consumed by the next step in the
    IT Value Chain. I prefer talking about architecture consumables

    Ultimately, to be successful, an architecture practice needs to
    provide to its stakeholders (within and outside IT) what they need,
    cost effectively.
