In this 9th posting we will cover the topic of using consultants in your Enterprise Architecture practice. This may seem like a strange topic to address.

First we will explore the question what capabilities effective Enterprise Architecture teams need from tools, and list some characteristics that tools need to have in order to efficiently support Enterprise Architects. In the second portion of this blog we will address best practices that Enterprise Architecture teams can use to fully leverage the power of Enterprise Architecture tools.
