employed in many large organisations, such as Volkswagen, General Motors, Bank of Americaand Health Canada. “Enterprise Architecture is the process used by a business to make explicitrepresentations of enterprise operations and resources, rather than relying on implicit notions orunderstanding in individual managers’ headsThe framework's rows include the following stakeholder views: 1. The planner's "Objective/Scope" identifies your organization's direction and purpose, setting the boundaries of your enterprise architecture efforts. 2. The business owner's "Enterprise Model" defines, in business terms, the nature of your company, including its structure, processes and organization. 3. The architect's "Model of Fundamental Concepts" defines the enterprise in more rigorous terms than the business owner (see "Enterprise Model" above), ensuring the model grows in detail. This row was called "Information System Designer's View" in the first version of the framework.
4. The designer's "Technology Model" determines how the technology will be applied to address the needs defined by the architect, business owner and planner.
