Enterprise Architecture

An enterprise architecture (EA) is a conceptual blueprint that defines the structure and
operation of an organisation. The intent of an EA is to determine how an organisation
can most effectively achieve its current and future objectives.


Enterprise Architecture enables:

  • A more efficient IT operation
  • Better return on existing IT investment and reduced risk for future IT investment
  • Faster, simpler and cheaper procurement
  • Increased flexibility for business growth and restructuring
  • Faster time-to-market for new products or even operational innovations
  • Reduced business risk associated with IT
  • Bridging of the business strategy and implementation gap
  • More pertinent and relevant solutions for the business
