This IDC study examines the need for careful and evidence-based business analysis and planning, especially given the demands of 3rd Platform and business transformations. This study describes how business architecture can be used to add clarity to business understanding and help business leaders better address business scenarios and planning.
This study enables CIOs, business and IT leaders, and architects answer three important questions:
- What is business architecture?
- How does business architecture help identify business transformation opportunities?
- How can we use business architecture to focus strategic planning and initiatives?
"The need to make quick business decisions is more important than ever. Business architecture provides leaders with the tools they need to make not only quick, but good, decisions," says Mike Rosen, adjunct research analyst with IDC's Research Network.
