Infosys Enterprise Architecture (EA) Survey 2008 – 2009: Outsourcing EA functions - A growing possibility
Outsourcing of enterprise architecture (EA) functions has the potential to grow in line with the outsourcing of other IT services. The results of Infosys Enterprise Architecture Survey 2008 – 2009 revealed that the EA teams involved in major initiatives engage their trusted partners to manage operational activities.
We invited technology leaders from client organizations and the global IT community to participate in our Enterprise Architecture Survey 2008 – 2009. 207 respondents from a cross section of industries completed a Web questionnaire. The results indicated several trends, including:
- EA is enabling business transformation.
- EA practices continue to mature with increasing use of metrics and processes.
- Increased outsourcing of EA functions is a strong possibility in the future.
