Enterprise Architecture (EA) has become the fastest growing and in-demand management principle that is now defining as effective and sustainable IT best practices adopted in organisations. Large organisations must overcome the complexity when scaling up their operations in order to plan and execute IT projects successfully. The heavy burden of complexity in IT shows that the organisations lack visibility of the consequences during any proposed technology projects.
Project management and EA in business settings are different units that have overlapped responsibilities and value to the organisation. organisations need to be able to define these roles to distinguish the specific value offered.
To ensure coordinated IT projects across the entire organisation, the project management office needs a clearer view of how the project may impact the business and technology landscape. When organisations link together between EA and Project management practices in prioritising the technology projects, fast and minimal risk implementation can be guaranteed as EA is able to tie all domains of the organisation and they are able to work together to ensure IT projects’ success even with different specialised skillsets.
