Abstract

Enterprise architecture is the organizing logic for business processes and IT infrastructure, reflecting the integration and standardization requirements of the firm's operating model. CISR research has found that firms go through four stages of architecture maturity as they learn to enhance the strategic capabilities of IT. Recognizing the learning acquired in each of the architecture stages can help firms invest wisely and maximize benefits ranging from faster IT response times to increased strategic impact from IT.

Keywords: Enterprise architecture, IT infrastructure, operating model, architecture maturity
