Enterprise Architecture and Vendor Relationship Management

One of the most frustrating things as an architect that I have experienced in every non-software centric company is the acceptance of bad software...

Doesn't enterprise architecture sometimes require us enterprise architect types to consider not just the software we use, the reduction in the amount of vendors we work with, but to help software vendors develop software that benefits our ecosystem?

What would it take for a few thought leaders to get a conversation going on improving the interactions between large enterprises and their vendors...
