  3. How well do corporations manage to orchestrate alignment by proper integration of enterprise architecture, business architecture, process design, organization design and performance metrics?

  4. Does your organization leverage an Enterprise Architecture or reference architecture that is used to provide design principles for new applications and implementing infrastructure changes?

  5. Does your organization have a designated Chief Architect or Enterprise Architect to lead the development of baseline and alternative solutions architecture descriptions?

  6. What is the role of a strategic Enterprise Architecture function in your organization without a cloud strategy today, about to embark on a dedicated push to the cloud?

  8. Which Enterprise Architecture artifact defines a set of entities that allow architectural concepts to be represented in a consistent and traceable manner?

  9. How can the various architectures at the local project level, and interdependencies and contents, be defined in the context of Enterprise Architecture?

  10. How has the transition to restful APIs affected your software engineering practices, Enterprise Architecture consideration, and that side of things?
