Useful tools, applications and solutions for highly demanding situations.
For our purposes, enterprise architecture consists of the various structures and processes of an organization, including both technical structures and processes as well as business/domain structures and processes. Following this definition, an enterprise architecture model is a representation of those structures and processes. A good enterprise architecture model will depict the organization both as it is today and as it is envisioned in the future, and will map the various views representing the architecture to one another. These views include both business-oriented perspectives as well as technical perspectives. In many ways enterprise architecture models are a communication bridge between senior business stakeholders and senior IT professionals.
Getting the foundation right is the best way to ensure consistent future development, modular additions, ensuring upgrade-ability, maintainability and cost effectiveness in live production.
