Enterprise architecture is the organizing logic for business processes and IT infrastructure, reflecting the integration and standardization requirements of the firm's operating model.

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.
