This chapter describes the overall evaluation of AIDAF for agility-related elements and shows that the AIDAF can have capabilities for the five agility-related attributes necessary for the execution of Digital IT strategies. Moreover, we evaluated and briefed strategy elements to mitigate risks in Digital Transformation. Also, this chapter briefs perspectives on AIDAF, such as benefits, challenges, and critical success factors. In the latter of this chapter, we refer to global Architecture Board activities for digital transformation and the main limitation of this study. In later chapters, we will describe the conclusion in terms of the AIDAF, Architecture reviews, knowledge management and Risk Management for digital transformation and refer to the future researches.
