Structuring the Information System Architecture Using Patterns
Enterprise Architecture (EA) is an approach, which aims to align the business strategy and IT infrastructure in order to maximise the application and investment of IT facilities. In fact, EA is a conceptual framework that defines the structure of an enterprise, its components and their relationships. It involves a considerable amount of work with high level of complexity. Indeed, if proper methods and approaches are not used, a huge amount of chaos and overheads will be caused. This paper aims to introduce a structuring approach for organising EA tasks. This approach provides guidelines on how to organise and document business services.
