Starting with Enterprise Architecture is like Going Green:
- You will replace things that are working – but the replacement is better
- You will change gradually – as interdependencies are HUGE
- It is a long term commitment – maybe with some quick wins, but mostly long ROIs times
- It is the right thing to do
- Europe is way ahead 🙂
This resulted from a great lunch discussion today with someone from Gartner, talking about the differences between Europe and North America regarding the adoption of Enterprise Architecture and EA Tools and why Europe is so strong in EA.
