An EA Metaframework: Making Frameworks Work

Executive Update
Posted August 23, 2016 in Business & Enterprise Architecture

Predefined source or reference frameworks such as TOGAF, Zachman Framework, IFW, or DoDAF are all very different. We need a simple way to first identify the factors that we need from each framework, and then combine them to create several relevant checklists or frameworks. This tool is the EA metaframework. This Executive Update provides an explanation of the different types of architecture frameworks, describes the role of the metaframework, and shows how architects can use it to create multiple integrated practical frameworks.
