Designing and Architecture for Enterprise Architects

DEMO: You can designing and architecture an EA Atlas via import excel data for analysis of security risk.

Enterprise Architecture is a complete science and profession of its own. Still, the Architecture Design field is young, so for most of us, it is all new. Beneath you will find a list of 'How To' step-by-step tutorials to design effective visual and interactive products.

When you are busy designing in Architecture Software and you are curious about how to create certain architecture products or how to execute certain architecture processes? The resources on this website are your guide that will lead you through the steps on Visual Enterprise Architecture compliant with the Dragon1 open EA Method.

Designing and Architecture starts with an Enterprise Architecture Framework on Dragon1.

Your Step by Step Tutorial

On every page here, you will find a series of steps for designing and architecture products. The order of these enterprise architecture products is the ideal/normal order of products to create compliant with the Dragon1 EA Method.
