It describes an approach based upon the established best practice contained within TOGAF, an Open Group standard.
This White Paper is structured to provide the context, content, and rationale behind choices and steps in the ADM, and supporting concepts in the TOGAF standard, that an EA Practitioner can consult at any point in time to develop, maintain, or improve the value extracted from their organization’s EA. In short, this paper is intended to guide the Practitioner to use TOGAF essential scaffolding to deliver an actionable EA for their Enterprise.
