The importance of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) in enhancing organisations’ economic, environmental and social sustainability has been well recognised. Furthermore, Enterprise Architecture (EA) plays an important role in developing and managing technologies and systems of organisations. However, since established EA standards and frameworks were primarily developed in the context of practices in developed countries, there is a need to understand the unique cultural, institutional, and resource constraints developing countries face in implementing EA. This research-in-progress paper aims to address the knowledge gap by investigating the current practices and challenges of EA in developing countries for supporting sustainable digital transformation. It involves a mixture of extant literature analysis and interviews with eight practitioners practising EA from private and public organisations in Bangladesh, as an example of a developing country. Our findings so far offer a modest contribution to research and practice related to EA and sustainable digital transformation.
