Enterprise Architecture Framework Development

An Enterprise Architecture Solution Framework document should provide high level strategic direction across the entire IT organisation with technical design and implementation being separately documented. The Framework document would normally include coverage of the areas such as WAN Network and Security, Data Centre Strategy, Identity Management Strategy, Storage and Archival, Desktop Strategy (SOE etc), Corporate Applications, Operations Management and Mobility Strategy. This solution framework approach is different to a traditional EA in that it utilises specific target areas rather than a “boil the ocean” approach.
