How does EA help an enterprise to view technology resources?
Linking EA and Technology Planning \nTechnology is a type of resource that enables information and other resource flows to support the creation and delivery of business products and services, which in turn enables the achievement of strategic goals. \nIt is important that technology not drive business and strategy planning, especially in resource-constrained enterprises, where the expense of duplicative non-strategic technologies cannot be afforded. Bottom-up planning (e.g. where technology is the catalyst for change) is a viable use of EA; however it’s not the normal process for resource implementation. It’s more important for the enterprise to understand its primary directions and priorities, plan necessary business activities, and then identify the supporting resources, including IT.
