  • The point here is that there are lots of definitions of enterprise architecture. This one was fairly succinct. The key is that it is a framework. When we look at organizations, we create a “domain model”. That domain model attempts to understand how people, systems, processes and organizing principles work together. This helps when developing new applications, integrating systems and improving the user experience when they interact with both structured and unstructured information
