Over 80% of Business Architects say that they are playing an active role in the strategy formulation or strategy execution alignment process.
Boston, MA (PRWEB) December 30, 2013
Based on a Fall, 2013 survey by Jeff Scott and Greg Suddreth of practicing Business Architects shows that business architecture is crossing the IT/business Rubicon to become a true business function.
Business architecture began its life as a core element of the enterprise architecture model. The early practitioners were largely IT enterprise architects. Today, business architecture is rapidly becoming a business focused and business managed initiative.
As a result, business architects have shifted their focus from technology and efficiency to strategy and business effectiveness. They are spending a significant amount of their time with business leaders and working on broad organization-spanning initiatives. Most encouraging of all, business architects see themselves in a more active role as change agents, not just designers of change. There are still significant challenges ahead but the direction seems clear and momentum is growing.
