Digitalization has a major impact on Enterprise Architecture, as businesses flow over enterprise boundaries and business solutions expand to cover customers and ecosystems as well. A traditional monolithic architecture becomes complicated to manage and limits creativity inside company boundaries. The IT Standard for Business presents an approach that gives more room for planning the digitalization by integrating business to different ecosystems. The modularity of this approach allows a more agile development of architecture for different business areas.


An Overview Of Enterprise Architecture And Its Importance Within Business & IT

Enterprise Architecture is a rigorous approach for describing the structure of an enterprise. A well-managed enterprise architecture results in an effective and sustainable enterprise.

It can be regarded as three things:

  • A Discipline. It is the way of thinking about the structure of an enterprise.

  • A Process. There are processes for architecting an enterprise, covering how architectures are created, how they change and evolve, and how architectures are managed.

  • A set of work products. A set of models and diagrams that represent and describe the structure of an enterprise.

By using a standard framework, organizations can develop an enterprise architecture that is consistent, reflects the needs of stakeholders, employs best practice, and gives due consideration to current requirements.
