Forrester reported that only 40 percent of respondents claimed EA's governance structure as matching IT's structure
While enterprise architecture (EA) plays an important role in planning IT strategy, line of business leaders tend to have no knowledge of EA's role in the business and many EA organizational structures do not map with the rest of IT's reporting structure. These were just some of the findings uncovered in Forrester's annual enterprise architecture survey, which found that as EA encounters these organizational issues, it is struggling to keep up with many changes in architecture meant to deal with volatile technology in areas such as collaboration, content management and application integration.
