Enterprise Architecture ≠ IT Architecture

Six Reasons Why EA Should NOT be Assigned to the IT Department

6. EA ≠ IT Architecture

5. True EA leads to redistribution of authority, which is beyond CIO jurisdiction.

4. EA value proposition (i.e. standardization vs. innovation) is solely business realizable.

3. The primary goal of EA is to build coherent enterprises, not better IT systems.

2. Synthesis takes precedence over analysis.

1. EA failure is an organization failure, not an IT failure.

These points were taken verbatim from Pallab Saha's illuminating post on LinkedIN group - The Enterprise Architecture Network.
