Despite the fact that nowadays, architectures, development processes, frameworks and technologies are maturing to be Service Oriented Architecture (SOA). Former frameworks for enterprise architecting couldn’t be matched with those SOAs. Thus putting to use those frameworks to the business enterprises make IT/ICT consultants and enterprise architects encounter with some complex difficulties in the enterprise architecting projects. ISRUP E-Service Framework is proposed and developed based on SOA and RUP to converge E-Business, E-Commerce and E-Government concepts through just leveraging E-Services (especially web and grid services) by architecting the information systems in the enterprises. This paper explains the results of the benchmarks which done in between ISRUP E-Service Framework and 21 different methodologies, processes, notations, life cycles and standards pertaining to their capabilities.
