    Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskriftTidsskriftartikelForskningpeer review


    Here we illustrate how an EA capability can contribute to an acquisition process by preparing the firm so it is ready to acquire, identifying value-creating possibilities, engaging in direct inte­gration efforts, and monitoring the progress of work. Through our research and practical experiences, we’ve come to appreciate the value of enterprise architecture as an activity or action (the process of architecting) over that of a static framework (the concept of architecture), thereby focusing on the outcomes and impact of EA rather than the idea.
