A considerable number of individuals are in search of methods for developing Enterprise Architecture (EA). Two widely recognized approaches for developing EA include the Future First Approach and the Current First Approach.
𝗧𝗵𝗲 𝗙𝘂𝘁𝘂𝗿𝗲 𝗙𝗶𝗿𝘀𝘁 𝗔𝗽𝗽𝗿𝗼𝗮𝗰𝗵 to EA development is a forward-thinking method that focuses on creating a future vision for the organization and then designing the EA to support that vision. This approach requires a strong understanding of the organization’s strategic goals and objectives, and involves collaboration with stakeholders to identify the necessary technology, processes, and resources required to achieve those goals.
𝗧𝗵𝗲 𝗖𝘂𝗿𝗿𝗲𝗻𝘁 𝗙𝗶𝗿𝘀𝘁 𝗔𝗽𝗽𝗿𝗼𝗮𝗰𝗵 to EA development is a more reactive method that focuses on addressing the immediate needs and challenges of the organization. This approach involves analyzing the organization’s current IT landscape and identifying areas for improvement, such as redundancy reduction, cost optimization, and process standardization. The Current First Approach can help organizations quickly address pressing issues, but it may not be as effective in supporting long-term strategic goals.
