Enterprise Architecture

Enterprise Architecture (EA) is a collaborative, consensus building alliance among agencies for aligning technology with business goals and for designing, implementing, and maintaining the underlying infrastructure to support information sharing and resource optimization.

The mission of Enterprise Architecture is to provide a process that sets common goals and coordinates the delivery of information technology services to state government that are responsible and cost effective.  EA is built upon five Conceptual Principles.

Benefits

For state government to be as responsive and cost effective as possible, it is essential to have a clear view of enterprise goals and how to achieve them. EA offers a model that connects business objectives to IT strategy, and creates a formal communication structure to support the attainment of a common vision.

Through EA, state agencies guide the future direction of information technology. The success of this highly collaborative process depends on the strength of its governance structure and the commitment of the participants to its goals and guiding principles.

EA is an on-going, iterative process that provides:

  • A common vision of the future shared by stakeholders in business and information technology
  • Guidance in the selection, creation and implementation of solutions driven by business requirements
  • Support for the business of government through improved information sharing
  • A means to control growing complexities of technology by setting enterprise-wide, leveragable, standards for information technology
  • Assurance to policy-makers that agencies are creating new systems and migrating old systems through a consistent process
  • A plan for the integration of information and services at the design level across agency boundaries
