Enterprises choose Enterprise Architecture (EA) solution, in order to overcome dynamic business challenges and in order to coordinate various enterprise elements. In this paper, a solution is suggested for the Enterprise Architecture (EA) based on a conceptual model of Enterprise Ontology (EO). Enterprise Ontology (EO) provides a common structure for data collection. First, conceptual model of Enterprise Ontology (EO) based on the Zachman framework is presented. Then, the Enterprise Architecture development process based on Enterprise Ontology (EO) is proposed. Using this solution, staffs, stakeholders, users, architects, and systems achieved a common understanding of enterprise concepts and relationships and therefore, architecture data are collected in a correct way.
