Experiences of Tool-Based Enterprise Modelling as Part of Architectural Change Management

Cameron Spence, Vaughan Michell

Abstract

Enterprise Architecture is widely practised as a part of a strategic business change methodology and is often vital to successful business change. This paper examines the pragmatic use of enterprise architecture modelling (EAM) tools. A pilot survey of EAM practitioners identified that many companies abandon the use of EAM tools despite the benefits that should result from their use. Some of the reasons for lack of sustainability include (a) failures in modelling governance, (b) lack of alignment with the change method, (c) users withholding information and (d) poor perception of EA itself.
