Enterprise Architecture Evaluation: A systematic literature review

Research output: Contribution to book/anthology/report/proceedingArticle in proceedingsResearchpeer-review

By being holistically preoccupied with coherency among organizational elements such as organizational
strategy, business needs and the IT functions role in supporting the business, enterprise architecture (EA)
has grown to become a core competitive advantage. Though EA is a maturing research area, little has
been done to understand how e.g. projects, application or other organizational elements contribute to the
overall EA. The current paper presents a literature review on EA evaluation. Different types of evaluation
are a necessity in order to ensure that EA demands are being met by disparate IT initiatives. Still, EA
evaluation has attracted little attention within academic literature. Thus, the aim of the current review is
to get an overview of the topic, which can serve as a foundation for further development of the field.
Overall, the study shows that while little research has been done within this area, research is especially
lacking regarding empirical studies of how EA evaluation unfolds in practice, while holistic views on EA
evaluation is almost non-existing.
