Enterprise Architecture - INF4883

Honours Year module NQF level: 8 Credits: 12
Module presented in English Module presented online
Purpose: The purpose of this module is to address the question of 'What is Enterprise Architecture?' by way of an introduction to the broad field of study. This introduction is approached from a high level view so that the student can be exposed to the business view of enterprise architecture. This is important since enterprise architecture has as one of its task the bridging of the separation (or divide) between business and IT. What the student will learn is that EA is neither an IT nor a business 'thing' but rather something that is used by the enterprise to aid with its efficient handling of complexity. The Student will also be introduced to EA's main activity which is the modelling of the enterprise as a first step towards the "doing" of EA.
