The EA Data Architecture is built upon five EA Conceptual Principles and five EA Principles for Data/Information:
A limited number of Relational Database Management Systems (RDBMS) will be the standard across the enterprise for new development.
The use of standard data elements of universal fields will be used across the Enterprise for new development and system enhancements.
Database systems will address appropriate backup, recovery and maintenance procedures to ensure business continuity.
Develop a statewide data warehouse to provide analytical functions.
Develop a statewide customer database.
Enterprise Architecture (EA) interweaves business and IT together. It consists of the vision, principles, and standards that guide the purchases and deployment of technology within the enterprise.
