Enterprise Architecture is often misunderstood as the process of designing IT systems.

In fact, Enterprise Architecture is the art/science of “architecting” the enterprise.
It is the process of modelling and documenting all aspects of the organisation (i.e. the enterprise) to ensure that services, processes, applications, information, data, technology, locations, people, events and timelines are all aligned with the enterprise goals and objectives.
