Knowledge is the foundation to any well-managed Enterprise Architecture practice. The key driver towards the use of EA is the need to ensure that resources (such as manpower and money) are being used effectively, in pursuit of enterprise goals.
Knowledge of these goals, how they relate to activity and resource use, and how these will change over time must be built up and used to define business and IT strategy.
This knowledge must be well-managed, well-communicated and well-understood (requiring clear structures, well-defined processes and effective tools to underpin EA activities).
At Doriq, we have developed a cohesive approach to managing this knowledge actively, understanding its structure deeply and ensuring that it is captured, maintained and used in the optimal way, to support Enterprise Architecture.
