Investigating Service-Oriented Business Architecture
Enterprise Architecture (EA) is a term used in Information Management to refer to the joint design of an organization’s business infrastructure and the information technology (IT) infrastructure. EA is a major instrument to achieve business/IT alignment, i.e. the strategic and operational integration of an organization’s business and IT domains, which in turn contributes to effective enterprise governance of IT, i.e. the responsible investment in and management of IT resources such that IT delivers business value.
