Why Enterprise Architecture will continue to achieve mediocrity...
It is not enough to write blueprints, standards, and guidance for architects and designers. EA need to build living, self-documenting systems that provide real time metadata linked to financial and resource usage data that result in graphics that allow business manager to make decisions about the ongoing value of processes, technology, and infrastructure investments.
