Sometimes I get the feeling that there is an unresolved tension between business architects (BA) and enterprise architects (EA). The various discussions regarding the scope of each role, the business-focus to IT-focus ratio for EA and BA, and other lines of demarcation between this architecture duo intrigue me.
Should we even care about the “enterprise” and “business” architecture labels? I say no. It is more important that architecture leaders, executives, and key organizational stakeholders align on the organizational areas managed by the architecture practice and the authority granted for each.
