5 Benefits of Enterprise Architecture

5 Benefits of Enterprise Architecture

Enterprise Architecture is a business concept that manages the business strategies of the organization and the relationship between these business strategies and IT systems. It allows organizations to align their IT infrastructure with their business goals and strategies. It enables the planning, design and execution of enterprise analysis for the management of business strategies. The concept of EA emerged from reasons such as the difficulty of analyzing complex systems and the inability to evaluate IT needs correctly.

What are the Enterprise Architecture Frameworks?

Enterprise Architecture Frameworks specify the methods, tools, and processes of enterprise architecture implementation. EA Frameworks consist of description, design method, and organization. Different types of frameworks can serve different purposes. Therefore, the framework preference of the institutions affects the efficiency of the EA. Some commonly used frameworks are:

  • TOGAF (The Open Group Architectural Framework)
  • Zachman Framework
  • FEAF (Federal Enterprise Architecture Framework)
  • Open Agile Architecture (O-AA)
  • Gartner EA Methodology
  • DoDAF (The US Department of Defense Architecture Framework)
  • SAP Enterprise Architecture Framework
  • OBASHI Business & IT Methodology and Framework

Benefits of Enterprise Architecture

EA provides many benefits to organizations. It enables organizations to comprehensively review their IT status and IT objectives.

Decreasing Complexity

Complex systems that are difficult to manage can cause many errors as well as reducing efficiency. As mentioned before, EA emerged as a solution to the complexity of systems in organizations. Hence, decreasing the complexity of systems is one of the biggest expectations of an organization from EA. It simplifies the management of systems with the right tools. EA reduces systems complexity by detecting and stopping processes that do not contribute to targets.

Standardization

Enterprise Architecture helps standardize processes and applications, resulting in more stability. Standard processes will increase efficiency while reducing the risks that may be encountered. EA also standardize IT processes and IT infrastructure successfully. A better IT infrastructure will yield more successful results.

Reducing Wasted Time

Enterprise Architecture saves time for IT staff as it will enable the optimization of IT tools and processes. It prevents bigger problems by enabling the causes of problems to be detected faster. This reduces the loss of time and workforce caused by disruptions.

Cost Saving

Enterprise Architecture eliminates processes that do not benefit. This also includes unnecessarily repetitive processes. This results in significant resource and cost savings. In addition, EA saves IT budget by optimizing IT infrastructure.

Change Analysis

Enterprise Architecture provides organizations with higher agility. This means being able to analyze and respond to changes in the industry faster. Strategies and IT processes can be adapted to new models or renewed according to changes.

Strong Security

EA describes the systematized structure of the measures taken against today's cyber security breaches. It becomes one of the most important tools in your arsenal and makes a difference in protecting data by strengthening your cyber security. Because with the expansion of the online world, cyber security vulnerabilities are also increasing. It is necessary to be alert to prevent threats that may enter the system from a weak point at any time. Possible data breaches and thefts are actually just the tips of the iceberg.

It is clear that threats will come from outside. But the repeated purchase of the same software and the IT department is unaware of it will further increase cybersecurity vulnerabilities. With EA, you can have a higher level of protection by adding value to the cybersecurity field.
