Abstract:The Digital Transformation era has unlocked unique opportunities for organizations to disrupt and innovate with new products and services by leveraging novel emerging technologies such as mobile computing, big data analytics, cloud computing, and the internet of things. The range of possibilities provided by Digital Transformations comes at the expense of constant change across multiple levels of the enterprise including organizational structures, operational processes, business strategies, and even corporate culture. Facing the challenges brought by the new digital era not only requires the adoption of emerging technologies, but committing to best practices that allow organizations to execute successful Digital Transformations. Conventionally, Enterprise Architecture has proven to be the discipline that best provides a basis for highly integrated environments, that are responsive to change and supportive in the delivery of the business strategy. However, organizations that have allocated resources and great efforts to become truly digital, criticize the Enterprise Architecture practice as it fails to grasp the fundamental concepts from the nature of Digital Transformations. Certainly, such discontent has drawn attention to perform this research. The main objective of this research is to design, validate, and evaluate an Enterprise Architecture framework that stimulates business agility, simplifies architecture development, and promotes collaboration across business and IT units in order to lead organizations to successful Digital Transformations.
