On top of the list of these factors is integration with the existing back-office and legacy systems.
There are already established and mature frameworks like The Open Group Architecture Framework (TOGAF) Zachman Framework to facilitate enterprise architecture development. With the advent of enterprise blockchain technology, a question arises regarding whether we can leverage existing frameworks to address enterprise blockchain architectural needs. The answer is yes.
In the section, we'll look at TOGAF and its architecture development method (ADM), and consider how blockchain solutions can benefit from the TOGAF framework.
Other models can also be used, but TOGAF is popular and quite commonly...
