20 Most Promising Enterprise Architecture Technology Providers - 2019
Enterprise architecture (EA) solutions have shepherded digital transformation by influencing every activity of the enterprise chain, ranging from regular business processes to IT support. The enterprise architect’s role in spotting new technology trends in the cloud, IoT, machine learning, and artificial intelligence has become critical in ensuring that companies’ strategies align with upcoming trends and their applications.
In recent times, there has been a surge in the popularity of customer-centric EA solutions providing easily understandable and accessible information. Cloud-based solutions have become highly popular, as they can be accessed by people irrespective of location. The transition to cloud has altered the process of developing applications and provisioning of hardware, which ultimately alters the development of enterprise architecture solutions.
Another technology that has caused major disruptions in the EA solutions landscape is artificial intelligence. The use of AI in enterprise software solutions is expected to enable organizations to harness data for the extraction of new insights into the company and automate processes requiring repetitive human labor. Eventually, AI will improve the customer service, decision quality, scale and operational efficiency of enterprise architecture applications.
As enterprise architecture solutions become increasingly widespread, the need for adequate security measures is on the rise. Unlike traditional security architecture that consisted of preventive, detective, and corrective controls implemented to protect the enterprise infrastructure and its solutions, the truly effective enterprise architecture solutions of today consist of directive controls, including a variety of policies and procedures.
