Define: Enterprise architecture?
Enterprise architecture (EA) is concerned with the structures and behaviors of a business, especially business roles and processes that create and use business data. It has been defined as “a well-defined practice for conducting enterprise analysis, design, planning, and implementation, using a comprehensive approach at all times, for the successful development and execution of strategy. Enterprise architecture applies architecture principles and practices to guide organizations through the business, information, process, and technology changes necessary to execute their strategies. These practices utilize the various aspects of an enterprise to identify, motivate, and achieve these changes.”
