Continuous business, technical, and regulatory changes constantly force organizations to transform. Enterprise Architecture Management (EAM) is a means to plan, conduct, and coordinate these complex transformations. It provides a holistic view, a common vocabulary, and a solid decision base for enterprise transformation planning. And yet, with issues like a decoupling between requirements and final results, a long delivery period, or unappreciated value, the discipline of EAM is not immune to domain-specific challenges. While literature from an academic and practitioner authorship acknowledges these issues, the actual occurrence, pervasiveness, and degree of relevance from an industry standpoint remains unclear.
