This comes from Leo de Sousa, an EA in Australian Higher Education who asked the Shared Insights EA Network to provide ideas about what EA trends they were seeing.

My take: leading organisations get EA and are figuring out how to link it to other important IT governance-related practices, but this is still a sparse community with demand for skills outstripping supply and not enough consistent “good practice” guidance out there. Grass-roots communities (like the aforementioned EA Network) are starting to help EA practitioners build a critical mass of “stuff that works”, though.

If I had any more time, I’d think about writing a followup to The Technology Garden, focused specifically on Enterprise Architecture practice in the real world…
