Methods for whole-enterprise architecture – Keep it simple

For a viable enterprise ­architecture [EA], now and into the future, we need frameworks, methods and tools that can support the EA discipline’s needs. One crucial criterion is that any methods and frameworks we use must support fractality – the same patterns, regardless of scope
