IDC PlanScape: Aligning Enterprise Architecture with Agile Teams
This IDC study highlights the importance of aligning enterprise architecture with Agile teams. For many companies, the gap between EA and Agile delivery continues to widen despite the obvious and growing importance of a strong EA. "Unless IT and business managers take a deliberate approach to synchronizing the two disciplines, they will remain out of sync," says Susan Martin, adjunct research advisor for IDC. "Agile teams will continue to create silo solutions that are difficult to integrate and add to complexity, while they view EA as irrelevant at a time when it is most needed."
