Enterprise Architecture

Enterprise Architecture HexThe Enterprise Architecture (EA) process blade overviews how a disciplined agile EA team will work. An effective enterprise architecture is flexible, easily extended, and easily evolved collection of structures and processes upon which your organization is built. The act of disciplined agile enterprise architecture is the collaborative and evolutionary exploration and potential modelling of an organization’s architectural ecosystem in a context-sensitive manner. The implications are that enterprise architects must be willing to work in a collaborative and flexible manner AND other teams must be willing to work closely with enterprise architects.
