This is generally set against the context of a rapidly changing technology and/or business environment. I strongly believe in the approach of - "For an IT strategy to be effective it must have measurable links to a business strategy"

Applying architecture principles and practices to guide organizations through the business, information, process, and technology changes necessary to execute their strategies.
