Be ready

EA for IT is a powerful IT Transformation to strengthen the power of EA in a Box, and the second chapter to build a full Enterprise Architecture capability from scratch. We have seen that EA in a Box is a powerful way for Enterprise Architects to deliver services and value to the whole organization. With its strong customer and service-centric approach, it is very agile and flexible. If you adopt EA in a Box solely, it is powerful enough by itself to position Enterprise Architecture as a great advisory function within any organization.

In this series of pages, we complement EA in a Box with EA for IT, a powerful integration of EA in a Box, into your IT Department. This integration will strengthen the power of Enterprise Architecture, with extended benefits for IT and your organization. It is the second step in your journey to maximize the value of Enterprise Architecture.

EA in a Box, EA for IT, and EA for Biz, are the perfect combination and the most efficient way to build a complete Enterprise Architecture capability, and take the most of this great discipline.

As a preliminary, one should be familiar with ITIL practices, an efficient framework to organize an IT department to optimize service delivery.
