The SOA Consortium's EA2010 Working Group - a group of "Street-smart" enterprise architecture practitioners - has been actively discussing the domains, services, practices, and skills required for a thriving, business relevant enterprise architecture practice in the 2010s. A critical finding of these discussions is the emphasis on technology concerns at the expense of business understanding and, ultimately, true business enablement, in most enterprise architecture practices today. Successful enterprise architecture practices in the 2010s must give equal emphasis to technology and business concerns. The means for this re-balancing is the elevation, and, in some cases, initial adoption, of business architecture practices.
