How is an EA Change Request and how is it used within the Configuration Management process?
Changes to the EA include the addition, upgrade, retirement of EA components or artifacts. CM ensures that (1) a standardized process is used in reviewing proposed changes, (2) technical standards for voice, data, and video are followed or waived, (3) there is a documented waiver process, (4) waivers have specific time limits, so that EA standards are eventually realized, (5) there is enforcement for EA documentation version control. The CM process should be overseen by the Chief Architect, and be supported by an Architecture Working Group that includes stakeholders from throughout the enterprise. \nThe CM process works through the submission, review and approval/rejection of an EA Change Request (EACR) form by any stakeholder
