Positioning Business and Enterprise Architecture
About this Resource
There is a lot of room for discussion surrounding the definition of enterprise architecture (EA). EA is widely misunderstood, not only by IT professionals, but also by CIOs, business professionals, and many architects themselves. The Federation of Enterprise Architecture Professional Organizations (FEAPO) describes EA in the following way: “Enterprise Architecture is a well-defined process for conducting the enterprise analysis, design, planning, and implementation needed for successful execution of strategy by applying architecture principles and practices to guide organizations through the business, information, process, and technology changes necessary to execute their strategies”.
In this paper, Mike Rosen takes the FEAPO’s description as a starting point and interprets different definitions of Enterprise Architecture to better understand the broad nature of the topic.
