How EA Improves the Quality of IT Investment Decisions

According to literature, enterprise architecture (EA) is supposed to support IT investment decision-making. However, it is not yet clear how EA can do that. Based on data collected in a survey of 142 participants we conducted a comparative analysis between top and bottom quartile organizations on 1) the EA maturity, 2) the use of EA artifacts in the preparation of IT investments, and 3) the key insights that EA provides in preparation of IT investments. The paper is accepted by the Journal of Systems and Software and will be published soon.
