An effective EA Program should play a leadership role in addressing these needs & wants.

Reduced time to bring new business products/services to the market by enabling the re-use of Business and IT services

Increased effectiveness of IT resources (capacity planning, solution teams) including increased efficiency of operation (design for change)

Increased effectiveness of Business resources by providing information and support for decision making (triggers points) and enabling impact analysis (reduce technology risk)
