The primary audiences for this Paper are business and IT managers who are responsible for the performance of operations. However, enterprise architects also play a key role in supporting IT governance, including architecture governance. Governance is defined as giving direction to activities. In this Paper, the authors focus on governance of the IT domain and its alignment to business. Governance is viewed as a mechanism that influences the internal logic and decision-making of organizations. The internal logic is defined as a compromise between practically conflicting parameters. The mechanism that has to deal with these conflicting parameters consists of decision domains, governance structure, social processes between individuals and groups, and controls to ensure the proper functioning of IT governance. In the context of IT governance, enterprise architecture can be considered as a means for coordination of decision-making related to IT and business. Furthermore, it is recognized that enterprise architecture in its own right also needs to be governed.  Access >>>
