Enterprise Architecture

Linking Business & Technology - Better, Faster, Cheaper

An enterprise architecture is a conceptual blueprint that defines the structure and operation of an organization. It provides the framework to logically organize and model the definitions of an organization by describing:

  • What the organization does
  • How it does it
  • Who does it
  • What data is used and where it is stored
  • What information technologies are employed and how they are used
  • The relationships and dependencies between them

The intent of an enterprise architecture is to determine how an organization can most effectively achieve its current and future objectives.

Enterprise Architecture can be described as containing four points-of-view, called the business perspective, the application perspective, the information perspective, and the technology perspective.

The business perspective defines the processes and standards by which the business operates on a day-to-day basis.

The application perspective defines the interactions among the processes and standards used by the organization.

The information perspective defines and classifies the raw data (such as document files, databases, images, presentations, and spreadsheets) that the organization requires in order to efficiently operate.

The technology perspective defines the hardware, operating systems, programming, and networking solutions used by the organization.

Advantages of having an enterprise architecture include improved decision making, improved adaptability to changing demands or market conditions, elimination of inefficient and redundant processes, optimization of the use of organizational assets, and minimization of employee turnover.
