Business in today’s times demands technological capabilities. The impact of computing technology is clearly seen on strategies influencing business. The spurt of recent advancements in technology has opened new avenues for businesses to seek solutions to their strategic problems. In this environment, it’s high time the IT sector came forward and plays a pivotal role in the management of businesses. The term, Enterprise Architecture (EA), relates to integrating IT with business strategy.
EA is a practice that involves documenting the data required for running the business, elements of business (including model, strategy, and processes), applications that help in the business processes, and technologies that facilitate business operations. This documentation serves as a blueprint to represent the current state of a business and its targets. EA primarily helps in decision-making. It does this by determining new initiatives for improving the productivity, and by examining proposals for alterations in business functions.
