This section starts with the core concepts and frameworks of the industry-wide adopted Enterprise Architecture (EA). EA is an industry framework to align the enterprise with the execution of disruptive and emerging changes. Strategically, it supports the targeted (or) desired vision and outcomes of the business. By design, EA is the fundamental block of the business, domain, and technology vision of an enterprise.

By the end of the chapter, you will understand the fundamental concepts of enterprise architecture, and its related business needs and benefits.

In this chapter, we will cover the following topics:

  • Understanding the definition of an enterprise architect and their related stakeholders
  • Knowing the real need of Enterprise Architecture to attain business benefits
  • Knowing the clear segregation between Solution Architecture and Enterprise Architecture
  • Details of four segregation types of Enterprise Architecture
