An Introduction to Enterprise Architecture is the culmination of several decades of experience that I have gained through work initially as an information technology manager and then as a consultant to executives in the public and private sectors. I wrote this book for three major reasons: (1) to help move business and technology planning from a systems and process-level view to a more strategy-driven enterprise-level view, (2) to promote and explain the emerging profession of EA, and (3) to provide the first textbook on the subject of EA, which is suitable for graduate and undergraduate levels of study. To date, other books on EA have been practitioner books not specifically oriented toward a student who may be learning the subject with little to no previous exposure. Therefore, this book contains references to related academic research and industry best practices, as well as my own observations about potential future practices and the direction of this emerging profession.

This book is positioned as a rst in a series of books on enterprise architecture needed for a Master of Enterprise Architecture program, and is targeted both at university students and practitioners with a drive to increase their understanding of these elds. As an introductory book, this book aims to explore the concept of enterprise architecture. At rst glance, writing such an introductory book might seem as a straight forward task of setting up a structure and lling in “the blanks. ” However, writing this book turned out to be a pleasant journey of discovery. Based on our past experiences, each of us had a clear understanding of enterprise architecture, based on several years of experience and insight in the eld. However, when we started writing this book, and each of us exposed our individual understandings, it became apparent that our understanding of the eld differed in several ways. This prompted several discussions leading to an abundance of new insights. Without exception, thesediscussionstookplaceina pleasantandopenatmosphere,fueledbyourshared driveforunderstandingandincreasedinsight. Wearenowevenmoreconvincedthan before, that the eld enterprise architecture is a true multi-disciplinary profession. In the resulting book, we would like to share our insights, while also hoping to continue our discussions, now also involving you as a reader. We also realise that the journey is still far from complete. While this introductory book provides an overview of the eld of enterprise architecture from the perspective of our insights, many aspects need further re nement.

Die Weltwirtschaft befindet sich in einem radikalen Umbruch. Traditionelle Märkte stagnieren, globale Märkte entstehen. Geschäftsprozesse werden mobiler, flexibler, schneller. Unternehmen, die gestern noch boomten, sind heute schon wieder verschwunden. Gefragt sind Ideen - für neue Geschäfte, für neue Produkte und Dienstleistungen, für eine andere Welt. Nur robuste und zugleich bewegliche Unternehmen werden überleben, die mit ihren Visionen die Zukunft aktiv mitgestalten. Wachstum ist nur möglich, wenn Unternehmensstrategien Bedürfnisse aufgreifen und mit dem jeweils technologisch Sinnvollen zu spürbarem Kundennutzen verknüpfen. Wenn Entwicklung, Marketing und Vertrieb die richtigen Szenarien entwickeln, und wenn Unternehmensorganisation, Produktion und Logistik dafür optimale Prozesse entwickeln. Das Buch bietet Ihnen eine Fülle verblüffender Zukunftsszenarien und kühner Visionen - ein Pool, aus dem Sie neue Ideen für sich und für die Zukunft Ihres Unternehmens schöpfen können - und es zeigt die Änderungen auf, die sich im Unternehmen vollziehen müssen, um diesen Zukunftstrends gerecht zu werden. Auch die neue Rolle des Menschen kommt dabei ausführlich zu Sprache. Ein ebenso informatives wie inspirierendes Buch.
