To improve IT project success, the IS architecture that managers need
to understand is emergent – the result of implementing IT projects in
organizations. Firms conduct planning sessions to create a vision of
their desired architecture that we call designed architecture. This
designed architecture serves to establish a common vision across the
professional IT community. However, every project results in the
creation of new dependencies or elimination of prior dependencies for
example, between systems, databases and platforms. As a result of
implementing these projects, companies create a gap between the
designed architecture vision and the emergent architecture in use.
This gap prevents companies from capturing the expected value from
their IS systems. Studying these dependencies holds the key to
understanding and managing the gap.

Traditional approaches to IT architecture have been focused on
identifying the components of architecture and the design rules that
govern their conceptualization, creation and delivery. The
dependences that exist between components are largely ignored. In
this work, we focus on the dependencies and, in particular, how the
dependencies between the components and organizational
interdependencies co-evolve. We use research from social networks
and modularity theory as a useful abstraction for architecture
representation and analysis.
