What is it?

Enterprise Architecture (EA) interweaves business and IT together. It consists of the vision, principles, and standards that guide the purchases and deployment of technology within the enterprise.


The mission of Enterprise Architecture is to provide a process that sets common goals and coordinates the delivery of information technology services to state government that are responsible and cost effective.


How can we promote the delivery of exceptional business value through IT?

Strategic Goals

  • Provide an exceptional enterprise architecture program
  • Align business and IT strategic direction
  • Evangelize technology and architectural direction

Why EA?

For state government to be as responsive and cost effective as possible, it is essential to have a clear view of enterprise goals and how to achieve them. EA offers a model that connects business objectives to IT strategy, and creates a formal communication structure to support the attainment of a common vision.

Through EA, state agencies guide the future direction of information technology. The success of this highly collaborative process depends on the commitment of the participants to its goals and guiding IT principles.
