This EA Metrics Measurement Framework will be governed by the concept of EA maturity and will measure EA implementation. Effectiveness, agility, and alignment with business goals and strategies should be defined as EA metrics. Once EA architecture is properly implemented, and business entities are engaged, it will improve the organization's overall planning activities, not just IT. Establishing an Enterprise Architecture function assists organizations in avoiding complexity and misalignment. However, if Enterprise Architecture is not well defined, managed, and maintained, it may fall victim to this complexity trap. Even if it is, it may be of little to no value to the organization if the well-defined artifacts are not in use.
