Robert Ehrensperger, Clemens Sauerwein, Ruth Breu

Abstract

The digital transformation influences business models, processes, and enterprise IT landscape as a whole. Therefore, business-IT alignment is becoming more important than ever before. Enterprise architecture management (EAM) is designed to support and improve this business-IT alignment. The success of EAM crucially depends on the information available about a company's enterprise architecture, such as infrastructure components, applications, and business processes. This paper discusses the results of a qualitative expert survey with 26 experts in the field of EAM. The goal of this survey was to highlight current practices in the information collection for EAM and identify relevant information from enterprise-external data sources. The results provide a comprehensive overview of collected and utilized information in the industry, including an assessment of the relevance of such information. Furthermore, the results highlight challenges in practice and point out investments that organizations plan in the field of EAM.
