EA JUSTIFICATION PAPER2Corporate leaders are pushing their CIOs more than ever to utilize Enterprise Architecture(EA) as part of their business objectives. CIOs have since used the EA process as a critical component in their IT structure. An Enterprise Architecture program is defined as an efficient process strategy which is mostly used in today's business organizations to help achieve future business goals. The EA deals with business processes, operational processes, capabilities, information systems, organizational structure, applications, and IT infrastructure while operating as a blueprint that explains how logically all systems are structured within an organization. An EA program is a business-oriented,well-organized process that requires teams to work mostly with leaders and key stakeholders to help define the future vision of the company. The current and future-state visions of the organizations are then compared, and investment decisions are taken to fill any gaps. In addition, EA aligns IT investments with business goals. Overall, the EA program is an extensive effort using all the resources necessary to achieve the future vision of an organization. The EA program is extremely beneficial for businesses seeking organizational changes (Shanks, Gloet, Asadi Someh, Frampton & Tamm, 2018). This justification paper is intended to show the benefits of implementing an EA for the Virginia DMV.
