FEAF – Federal Enterprise Architecture Framework

How important is Enterprise Architecture?

Well, it is important enough for the world’s most powerful nation to actively advance the field.

The United States Government even established the Clinger-Cohen Act in 1996 to ensure that Federal entities implement Enterprise Architecture.

The US Federal CIO Council is tasked with ensuring the Federal Government implement and adhere to the discipline of Enterprise Architecture.

They drafted the Federal Enterprise Architecture Framework (FEAF) back in 1999.

“Federal Enterprise Architecture (FEA) is the Enterprise Architecture of a Federal Government, which provide a common methodology for information technology (IT) acquisition, use, and disposal in that Federal government.” [1]

I think that is enough reason to believe Enterprise Architecture is important!
