Digital transformation requires an altogether new institutional logic and effective response at a requisite organizational level. Sensing and seizing fleeting market opportunities and reconfiguring the business in line with the shifting value proposition requires increasingly specialized resources, more dynamic capabilities, and in-built resilience in the face of change. While Enterprise Architecture (EA) has been suggested to facilitate enterprise transformation, the focus has traditionally been on process standardization and integration rather than on continuous adaptation to the changing business and technological landscape. For EA to have a desired impact, more adaptive conceptualizations of EA that address the requirements of the new digital environment are called for. In this conceptual paper, we explore the implications of digital transformation on enterprise architecture. In particular, we note that existing approaches to EA address integration and coherence within a single organization but typically fall short in the face of complexities pertaining to digital ecosystems. We suggest a vertical typology of organizational capabilities and postulate that today's digital environment increasingly requires adaptive capabilities that transcend the traditional notion of dynamic capabilities. We then investigate how EA can help build flexibility and resilience in the organization.
