Enterprise Architectures have emerged as comprehensive corporate artifacts that provide structure to the plethora of conceptual views on an enterprise. The recent popularity of a service-oriented design of organizations has added \"Service\" and related constructs as a new element that requires consideration within an Enterprise Architecture. This paper analyzes and compares the existing proposals for how to best integrate services into Enterprise Architectures. It uses the popular Zachman Framework as an example and differentiates the existing integration alternatives. This paper can be generalized beyond service integration into an investigation onto how to possibly extend Enterprise Architectures with emerging constructs.
