“Enterprise Architecture – the Eight Fundamental Factors” is an invaluable guide providing practical advice, examples and case studies that show how successful enterprise architects make a real difference. The fundamental factors described here are true for all enterprise architecture (EA) approaches. You will find them in The Open Group Architecture Framework (TOGAF), the Zachman Framework, and in every other EA methodology or framework. The book provides a combined, integrated EA approach. It shows exactly how these factors are used in practice, and it demonstrates this with details drawn from a wide-range of typical EA initiatives. The first edition was published in 2003 under the title “Information First”.
