Enterprise Architecture is a valuable tool that provides a holistic map of the systems comprising an organisation. This includes its; infrastructure, data flows, processes and behaviours.
It can be used as; a diagnostic tool for identifying the source of problems, a tool for testing future eventualities and therefore building resilience and for strategic decision making linking the micro components of a system to the macro organisational goals.
Using an enterprise architecture model allows an organisation to build its IT systems around the business function, not visa versa.
The failure to align and integrate an organisation business goals with IT systems is a growing issue, hampering many companies in their strategic development. Constructing integrated enterprise architecture models significantly reduces the complexity of this problem. A variety of architectural domains are commonly established for which architects use their own modelling and visualisation techniques.
