Here are some of the benefits of an Enterprise Architecture tool (and repository) - that immediately come to mind:

  • Supports reuse of design artifacts - and RAPID dependency & impact analysis - thus helping accelerate speed-of-delivery, and supports risks analysis - which in turns help with planning risk mitigation strategies (e.g., security, operations, performance, duplication of functionality, waste/costs, ...) 
  • Supports Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) and Application Portfolio Management (APM) - and application rationalization efforts 
  •  Supports IT Governance mechanisms (e.g., for ARC, TRC/TRM, Security, Infrastructure) 
  •  Acts as an IT knowledge repository - so the organization is not at risk of "tribal knowledge" walking out the door.
  • Supports Agile processes - by serving as a shared repository of AS-IS, TO-BE, Roadmaps, and reusable artifacts - and helping improve analysis for development of Epics, Stories, and Tasks.
