Enterprise Architecture is a solution to standardize Information Technology environment, reduce cost, and increase agility. For many years, Enterprise Architecture has helped organizations, businesses, and companies through necessary changes in process and technology to execute their strategies. In general, “enterprise architecture can be considered as a structured and aligned collection of plans for the integrated representation of the business and information technology (IT) landscape of the enterprise, in past, current, and future states” (Niemann, 2006). Enterprise Architecture program guide organizations to transform from baseline state to target state. The baseline state reflects the organization’s current processes and technologies. After analyzing the baseline state, Enterprise Architecture program applies disciplines, policies, and projects to direct organization toward the target state.
