A successful digital transformation in enterprises requires surpassing infrastructural flexibility within firms and high IT competency to accomplish changing business requirements. Digital Enterprises are challenged to combine business and IT to gain from existing technological achievements. Previous studies showed that there are certain factors influencing the benefit of Enterprise Architecture Management. However, there are some more influencing factors due to the digital transformation that were not taken into consideration yet. An alternative research approach investigates more factors and helps to get a deeper insight of impact factors. This paper draws on a first approach to investigate additional factors and their impact on EAM. The approach is based on a profound literature research in order to build a new empirical research model. In addition, the indicators were examined in a case of industrial digital transformation. It is shown that factors aggregated to the determinants IT Landscapes, internal as well as external Business Environments and the level of EAM Establishment have substantially impact on the benefit of EAM in enterprises.
