Enterprise Architecture

Enterprise architecture can be seen as a strategic blueprint or a total concept of an enterprise.

The visualization you see here is a typical Dragon1 visualization. It provides a strategic context of the enterprise architecture.

On the left, you see the strategy of the organization: the mission, vision, identity and stakeholders are shown, together with goals and requirements.

In the middle, you see the architecture in layers. On top is the concepts layer, below that the customer journey layer, process layer, information layer, application layer and IT infrastructure layer. All these layers contain the elements of the concepts from the concepts layer.

At the right, you see the transformation of the organization. You see programs and their deliverables.

If you click on the first goal on the left-hand side, the related items in the middle will light up. In this way, you as a director or manager can use Enterprise architecture products like this to manage the transformation in your organization.

What is an Enterprise Architecture?

Enterprise architecture (EA) is often said to be "a practice for enterprise analysis, design, planning, and implementation, using a comprehensive approach at all times. This will ensure the successful development of strategy and execution of strategy". (Read more about this on Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Enterprise_architecture).

At Dragon1: "an enterprise architecture (EA) is a conceptual blueprint that defines the structure and operation of organizations. The intent of enterprise architecture is to determine how an organization can effectively achieve its current and future objectives".
