The Role of Enterprise Architecture is No Fable

CIOs must be more like the ant than the grasshopper.

In Aesop’s fable, “The Ant and the Grasshopper,” the frugal ant laid up food for winter and survived when it got cold.  The grasshopper didn’t and died when its food ran out.

Today’s CIOs must be more like the ant, but they also need a bit of grasshopper in them.  They must balance the need their organizations have for immediate and impactful value from IT, while at the same time building the business technology foundation that will insure long-term business value and capabilities.
