How can an EA Management Plan show gaps in enterprise performance?
One of the purposes of the EA Management Plan is to show an overview of the linkage between current EA components and products at each level of the EA \n3 Cube Framework. In this way, the present role of IT within the enterprise is better understood and can be further analyzed from either a top-down, or bottomup perspective. The objective of this part of the EA Management Plan is not to duplicate the extensive documentation, but to provide an integrated view of how the components and artifacts work in support of each other. This also sets the stage for Part 3 of the EA Management Plan, which discusses future changes in EA components and artifacts to achieve improved performance and/or efficiency.
