The strategic role of Enterprise Architecture (EA) in deploying and managing
information technology (IT) and business resources has a longstanding research
tradition. In this particular domain falls the research on EA-based capabilities and their contribution to organizational benefits. This study conceptualizes and defines EA-based capabilities, following the dynamic capabilities view (DCV), and proposes a research model that tries to explain how dynamic enterprise architecture capabilities enable operational capabilities within firms. Data is collected from 299 CIO’s and IT managers to test hypotheses associated with the research model. The findings show that dynamic enterprise architecture capabilities enhance operational capabilities and the firms’ EA resources are essential in the process of cultivating dynamic enterprise architecture capabilities. The current study advances our understanding of how to efficaciously delineate dynamic enterprise architecture capabilities in enabling the firms’ operational capabilities and living in the present, as a foundation to enhance competitive firm performance.
