About this book

Enterprise architecture is an organization’s ultimate backbone that applies calculated planning methodologies to design, analyze, plan, and implement business strategies.

recrEAtion offers instructions through the vehicle of a business novel wherein our protagonist, Simon, joins an organization in New York as their first-ever Vice President of Enterprise Architecture. He meets the CTO and CEO of the company on his very first day, and their conversation takes a very unexpected turn. What follows is Simon’s journey across the globe where he deciphers the true meaning of EA.

As you go through the chapters, you will learn the two key goals of EA—improving business performance and establishing a flexible mechanism—reinforced through various observations during Simon’s journeys. You will derive conclusions through analysis to facilitate the efficiency of industrial operations and see that enterprise architecture needs to be more about the business, and less about sophisticated IT diagrams and 5-year plans.

By the end of this book, you will understand the challenges that EA’s face and have the skills to deal with them in a constrained time frame.
