Most organisations have problems in explaining and managing the economic benefits of Enterprise Architecture. Managers often asked me what Enterprise Architecture can do for me. At the same time several Governmental organisations are adopting Enterprise Architecture as part of their change and E-Government initiatives.
A holistic Enterprise Architecture approach can deliver a lot of benefits to organisations depending on the focus where to find these benefits. Even so Enterprise Architecture delivers the foundation for Enterprise Portfolio Management, the ultimate business driver for Enterprise Architecture.
The main purpose of this book is achieving awareness at management level as well as at enterprise architects level about adopting an economic approach when dealing with Enterprise Architecture programs.

EA Today 2017
To succeed, you must execute on a business technology agenda focused on delivering superior customer experience to drive growth; utilize agile, stakeholder-driven methodologies; and adopt wider people, process, information, and technology competencies. Enterprise and Security Architecture challenges today are very real and wide-ranging with significant implications across most business sectors of our society in order to address this situation, architecture research needs to be applicable across multiple domains and communities. www.enterprise-architecture.info

For research in Enterprise and Security Architecture to be impact-full, it must be based on both sound science and on the real world best practices. Security architectures and business designs are needed that provide generic security frameworks and reference architectures that allow for specialized, domain specific instantiations. This architectural principle is more important than the actual connection fabric and it moves the discussion of research from one of realization mechanisms to the higher level design and safety & security requirements that can deal with current and future business threats and operations.
