Since the Clinger-Cohen Act of 1996, industry and the federal government have recognized enterprise architecture (EA) as a best practice for IT management and a top enabler of modernization and transformation goals. Through the Clinger-Cohen Act, the federal government has mandated that federal agencies and services develop and use Enterprise Architecture (EA) for all program development, acquisition, and planning activities. DoD Architecture Framework (DoDAF) and Federal Enterprise Architecture Framework (FEAF) built Enterprise Architectures combined with other best practices—such as CPIC, capabilities/solutions development, acquisition, and supplier agreement/customer resource management, can provide your agency with a strong business methodology for planning, operating, and managing your enterprise.
Enterprise architecture supports the management of your agency’s capabilities through the alignment of your mission, strategy, operations, systems, initiatives, investments, and business processes. By fully developing an EA, your agency will have a decision support tool, backed by operational and systems views, that focuses on the collection of enterprise-level data to enhance your technical and operational decision making. EA cuts across organizational boundaries to enhance agency-wide portfolio management while also ensuring sound IT investment strategies.
