Thomas Davenport proposes a revolutionary new way to look at information management, one that takes into account the total information environment within an organization.

A company's enterprise architecture is unique neither good nor bad, but only appropriate or inappropriate in regard to management's vision of the future. The current enterprise architecture either supports the vision or it does not.
