What I want to know still is:
- How is EA applicable to my school district?

- If implemented properly, will EA help the community better understand what occurs in our classrooms, and why we need more technology and training?
- Zachman: Illustrates an enterprise with a 6X6 visual. The columns bring (what, how, when, who, where, and why) understanding of the rows (Planner, Owner, Designer, Builder, Subcontractor, and User) This framework is only to provide a visual representation of the organization.
- DoDAF: Has three views (Operational, System, and Technical Standards), and one overarching (All View) to provide the linkage between the three views. Ensures everyone is speaking the same language when working together.
- FEAF: The goal is to foster communication and seamless integration between agencies of the Federal Government. Each segment is developed independently under prescribed guidelines, and is considered to be its own enterprise within the Federal Enterprise.
- TEAF: “aims at facilitating integration, information sharing, and exploitation of common requirements across the (Treasury) department's.” Work products must align with FEAF and DoDAF products.
- TOGAF: Explains the process of developing good EA.
- Gartner: A Continuous process involves defining current state, defining a process to build future state, and managing the portfolio as it is transitioned to the Future State.
