Abstract

Enterprise architecture (EA) has claimed to provide several benefits
for organizations including improving organizational agility. Becoming more
agile is an essential capability for organizations and a necessity to respond to
the rapidly changing environment. The way these EA benefits are established
is seen as complex and involves interconnections of multiple organizational
facets. However, currently, there is a lack of empirical studies on EA and how
it contributes to benefit realization. Moreover, empirically validated work on
EA processes is even more scarce. This research addresses this gap and
investigates the effect of an EA management approach on organizational
agility. A conceptual model was developed proposing a mediation effect of IT
capabilities on the relationship between enterprise architecture management
and agility. A survey was performed among key EA stakeholders. Based on a
sample of 110 responses, a partial least squares structural equation modeling
analysis was performed to test the mediation model. The results indicate that
the effect of enterprise architecture management on organizational agility is
indeed mediated by IT capabilities. Finally, the present study discusses the
implications of this research and provides suggestions for future research.
