A lot of attention – in the media, on EA-oriented websites, at conferences, and in the minds of enterprise architects themselves – is devoted to EA frameworks. What are they? Should I use one? If so, which one? What do I use it for? It’s time to stop the questions and figure out once and for all – what are they good for?
EAdirections’ approach to Enterprise Architecture is framework-agnostic – that is to say, we can tailor the approach to include the use of a framework that fits your needs, or we can help you be effective without one. However, that is not to say that we think frameworks are useless. On the contrary, if you understand the strengths and background of a particular EA framework, it can be a valuable aid.
