Organizational Scope and Structure of EA


Organizational positioning refers to where in the organization the enterprise architecture planning and development activities are performed. Such positioning can have a significant effect on the success of the EA. To some degree the positioning depends on the purpose of the EA. If the primary purpose of the EA is as a strategic long range plan used to guide investments, enterprise architecture planning and direction activities are best positioned where they are closely associated with top-level strategic planning and long-term budget planning. If a key purpose of the enterprise architecture is to guide information technology development, the enterprise architecture effort should be positioned where the IT organization can contribute to it and benefit strongly from close association with it. Ongoing communication and interaction between the EA effort and its key stakeholders is essential.

Note: The term organization is used instead of corporation, enterprise, agency, or other term.
