Towards a Conceptualization of Architectural Support for Enterprise Transformation
Enterprise Architecture Management (EAM) is supposed to be a helpful means to support the management of enterprise transformations, i.e., fundamental changes. However, in current corporate practice, there seems to be no regular application of EAM as leading authority or support service for enterprise transformation. Thus, the authors examine, which activities need to be conducted in order to manage enterprise transformation. They further identify the needed information inputs for these activities. Based on this foundation, they analyze, which of the information inputs can be provided by EAM. They identify eight major activity areas of Enterprise Transformation Management (ETM).
