Module contents
Enterprise Architecture Management (EAM) is an interdisciplinary approach for the integration of information systems in enterprises and enterprise-like structures to support their business objectives and business processes. EAM addresses the harmonization of these aspects on the basis of the respective IT-architecture and business architectures to a holistic enterprise architecture. The description and development of such architectures is structured by Enterprise Architecture Frameworks like TOGAF and ZACHMAN. In general, the following architectural perspectives are taken into account: business architecture, information and data architecture, application architecture and technology architecture.
