Output and Benefits of Enterprise Architecture (EA) for an Organization
Kunal Bhat, Entrepreneur, India, Member
To answer your first question, you first need to analyze the main business stream of your organization. Accordingly, you can then classify each row areas and the corresponding column areas.
The framework, as I use it, allows me to 1st analyze and organize facts about the overall structure of my organization in terms of my very own BFOTM Analysis viz. Business, Functional, Operational, Technical and Managerial aspects. I apply this at a granular level for each project / work stack as well.
Your 2nd question: real benefits of Enterprise Architecture, they are as follows:
1. Solid know-how of your org/dept/work-area
2. Clear facts which allow you to identify problem/opportunity areas (SWOT analysis)
3. Derive/design an operational framework suitable to your org (using IT platforms)
4. Strategize IT costs through re-use, re-structuring
