U.S. enterprise architecture tools market size, by solution, 2018 - 2028 (USD Million)

Enterprise architecture tools are being widely used by businesses around the world to support strategic and tactical decision-making. Enterprise architecture tools obtain and integrate scope and relevant data across business, information, solution, and technology contexts, as well as other relevant architectural perspectives, to help make strategic decisions on business applications. Enterprise architecture tools are all-in-one platforms that enable businesses to plan, model, build, analyze, and implement effective business and IT architecture for better results. They are used throughout the application development life cycle by companies to create and model system architectures, which are then implemented for business practices.

Enterprise architecture tools aid in the comprehension of strategic architecture, the identification of opportunities and business risks, the analysis of options and financial projections to goals, and the identification of patterns and technology strategies for business expansion. These solutions help businesses keep track of the links and dependencies that exist across business processes, data, apps, and other technologies. The tools also serve as a source of data integration and metadata for all significant assets and properties of an organization. Furthermore, they assist in displaying all links and associations, allowing the organization to make better IT and strategic decisions.

An increase in data thefts, complications in data security, higher cost of enterprise architecture tools, and lack of technical expertise are some of the other factors restraining the market growth. For instance, in 2017, in the Equifax data breach, millions of customers lost their personal information such as credit card data due to data theft. Furthermore, unskilled labor or workforce is another challenge in the enterprise architecture tools market for realizing better business planning and strategies using enterprise architecture tools.

Solution Insights

The application architecture segment accounted for the largest market share of over 30% in 2020. The most widely used architecture tool in the market is the application architecture solution, which allows businesses to assess the mapping and aggregation of their software applications as part of their overall corporate architecture. Businesses can adapt rapidly to changing user requirements and shorten time to market with strong, agile application architecture. It also helps businesses in discovering functional gaps and ensuring that applications are scalable and reliable.

The data architecture segment is anticipated to expand at a considerable CAGR over the forecast period as it supports the development and implementation of data governance. Many businesses are implementing modular data architecture, which employs better and open-source elements that can be updated with new technologies as needed without disrupting the rest of the data architecture. This architecture also leads to cross-system activities such as common reporting, Enterprise Application Integration (EAI), and data warehousing.

Deployment Insights

The on-premise segment accounted for the largest market share of over 60% in 2020. Customers' in-house servers and computer equipment are used to build and deploy software or solutions in an on-premises delivery model. Hence, this model is less expensive for the customers compared to the cloud. For instance, companies' Capital Expenditure (CAPEX) is one of the models that implement on-premises solutions. This strategy is mostly used by companies that manage sensitive and confidential information in their applications as this model is cost-sensitive and secure.

Due to the usage of machine learning, IT devices, sensors, and a variety of other devices, every organization generates massive volumes of data. The on-premises deployment option allows businesses to ingest data into their databases, ensuring data protection. The on-premises deployment option makes use of on-premises Finance and Operations components, as well as service fabric standalone clusters. For instance, to access Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations, Enterprise version, various devices use a web browser or mobile application, similar to the cloud environment, which has made on-premise architecture a preferred choice for companies. Furthermore, growing concerns about data theft and the loss of critical company information via cloud-based platforms are driving the demand for on-premises enterprise architecture tools.

Enterprise Size Insights

The large enterprise segment accounted for the largest market share of over 65% in 2020. Enterprise architecture tools' agility and adaptability are driving their demand among large businesses, leading to the inclusion of new functionalities regularly. Organizations across the globe utilize a variety of software and systems to generate vast amounts of data. Enterprise architectural tools are expected to meet the growing needs of businesses for boosting efficiency and productivity in their operations owing to the ever-increasing data and growing need for technologies.

Large corporate networks and multiple revenue streams are the primary factors driving the adoption of enterprise architecture tools among large enterprises. Large companies have larger funds and are always keen on investing in new technologies to expand their business. Furthermore, large enterprises also face challenges based on the complexity of large system integration associated with advanced enterprise architecture tools. However, with robust integration, training, and support services by enterprise architecture providers, this challenge is expected to be resolved.

End-Use Insights

The IT and telecom segment accounted for the largest market share of over 30% in 2020. The segment growth can be attributed to the growth of digital transformation capabilities. Enterprise architecture tools help telecommunication companies enhance their technologies and strategic planning for product expansion. Furthermore, the advent of 5G technology is expected to increase competition in the market and also the demand for enterprise architecture tools that support the applications better. Digital transformation, the advent of 5G technology, and other technological advancements are some of the factors driving the deployment of enterprise architecture tools in the IT sector to support strategic initiatives and planning based on the future aspect of technology.

Global enterprise architecture tools market revenue share, by end use, 2020 (%)

Various upright challenges related to maintaining IP copyrights and cross-border data privacy and security are expected to increase with the use of applications and integrated solutions. Leading telecommunications companies have been implementing new approaches over the years for effective management of their IT infrastructure to achieve maximum value and maintenance practices of their architecture through integrations to improve their business performance. Changes in telecom companies' enterprise architecture are critical for delivering optimum value.
