Current Issues on Enterprise Architecture Implementation Evaluation

Authors: Fatemeh Nikpay, Babak Darvish Rouhani, Rodina Binti Ahmad

Abstract:

Enterprise Architecture (EA) is employed by enterprises for providing integrated Information Systems (ISs) in order to support alignment of their business and Information Technology (IT). Evaluation of EA implementation can support enterprise to reach intended goals. There are some problems in current evaluation methods of EA implementation that lead to ineffectiveness implementation of EA. This paper represents current issues on evaluation of EA implementation. In this regard, we set the framework in order to represent evaluation’s issues based on their functionality and structure. The results of this research not only increase the knowledge of evaluation, but also could be useful for both academics and practitioners in order to realize the current situation of evaluations.

Keywords: Evaluation, Enterprise Architecture‎, Current issues on EA, implementation evaluation, Evaluation of Enterprise Architecture Implementation
