Enterprise Architecture Body of Knowledge
Using an EA


An EA serves as an important communication tool to a range of stakeholders and interested parties. To business proponents and champions, the EA documents both current and desired operational processes and interactions. To data management personnel, the EA describes data objects used in current missions and systems and also the desired data model. To budget and oversight organizations, an EA provides evidence that sufficient thought and planning have gone into defining desired future capabilities and systems. An EA also helps to communicate organizational and IT strengths and weaknesses that need to be addressed.

This topic area offers guidance, case studies, and other references that can help EA practitioners understand how to use an EA as a communication tool within their organization.
