Portfolio Management

Portfolio management is the activity of making decisions about investments based on strategic vision, goals, and organizational needs and measuring outcome-based performance. EA can be used as a tool to influence an organization's portfolio management outcomes by illustrating gaps across business functions and/or AS-IS and TO-BE states, which may lead to investment recommendations to resolve gaps. In addition, EA can influence an organization's investment practices such as focusing IT reuse and shared information/licensing versus redundant purchasing of IT or business services. EA also enables an organization to monitor its investments performance determining whether the organizationís business needs are being met.
