Scope of EA

The Scope Of Enterprise Architecture

Quite frequently I get asked about the scope of Enterprise Architecture. Sometimes the question is a simple one: what is included in a typical EA initiative? But sometimes there’s a bit more to the question, with an implied: why is that included in EA?

TOGAF – Out Of the Box vs Customization

I frequently get asked whether it’s practical to use TOGAF “out-of-the-box” – without any customization.
