TOGAF for Enterprise Architecture

Today I would like to talk about one of the three formal disciplines in software architecture; Enterprise Architecture.  Far from being a singularly technology oriented engagement, an EA review involves most of the business divisions within an organization. EA is a means to consider the entire enterprise, holistically, and re-align aspects of the business which rely upon and contribute towards the Information Technology group’s efforts. An EA review is often undertaken as a means to prepare the organization for transformative change, or to re-establish an Information Technology group, and their tertiary business facets, upon sound footing.
