Last week, Forrester Research released The Forrester Wave™: Business Process Analysis, EA Tools, And IT Planning, Q1 2009. This was the second year that Forrester analyst Henry Peyret led the research, and this wave provides the broadest and most up to date coverage of EA and Strategic IT Planning tools currently available.
As part of the 2008 Architecture and Governance Survey earlier this year, we asked readers to list the top three items that they would like to have to make their jobs as strategists and architects better. As we close out the tumultuous 2008 and look forward to the new year ahead, I've captured some of the most thought full sets of wishes for you to contemplate.
On behalf of the entre staff of A&G, I hope you have a peaceful holiday, and I look forward to providing insight for you in the new year.
