George Colony, our CEO, just released a post on his blog about enterprise architecture, aptly enough named “Enterprise Architects For Dummies (CEOs).” I retweeted the post to my followers and received a flood of responses, most of which were violently disagreeing with George’s assertion that EA works for the CIO. I think this is a pointless argument, but underscores a very important change that most are missing.
Here’s what I mean:
The practice of EA supports the C-suite’s digital transformation and digital business design. When you think about the CBTO leading this effort, it all makes good sense. I discuss this in much more detail in my report “Build Trust And Agility With An EA Process Framework.” In this light, it doesn’t make much difference where you put enterprise architects or even what you title them, so long as the firm is doing the right things with the right people.
Does this make sense? Love to hear what you think.
