Who’s the boss?
At a recent confab, Forrester Research VP Gene Leganza provided some interesting speculation about the evolution of enterprise architecture. InformationWeek’s Charles Babcock reports on Leganza’s statements:
“Currently only 4% of enterprise architects report to a business executive, a chief operating officer, or chief executive officer, for example, as opposed to 43% that report to the CIO and 12% that report to the CTO, Leganza said.
