2 EA Framework Research Paper: DoD Architecture Framework (DODAF) DOD Architecture Framework The Department of Defense Architecture Framework (DoDAF) is a personalized framework of the United States’ Department of Defense (DoD) uses to create different enterprise architectures(EA) that can work together on most levels. (DODAF1, 2007) This framework is essentially the foundation from signifying and developing, describing and comparing enterprise architecture. This framework also allows for a smoother integration of different architectures across the structural margins. (DODAF1, 2007) The Department of Defense Architecture Framework (DoDAF) was created in the 1990’s as a secure version of principles that all branches of the Unites States Armed forces had at that time. The framework also promoted the uses of shared language, and assumptions to aid in integration and compatibility of resources. All of the United States DoD employees, joint agencies and contractors are required to develop their enterprise architectures according the guidelines and principles set within the framework. (DODAF1, 2007) As a result, the framework is very large as it is suited to handle very challenging integration and security needs, while maintaining high quality performance rates. The purpose of the DOD Architecture Framework is to ensure that architecture imageries can be likened and linked across structural margins, including Joint and multi-national borders. It was designed to meet the business and operational needs of the Department of Defense. It allows stakeholders to emphasis on certain areas in the enterprise, while keep the business’ mission consistent.
