What is an EA repository and how does it support the EA implementation methodology?

Categories: Methodology, Repository

The EA repository is intended to provide a single place for the storage and retrieval of EA artifacts that are created using EA software applications (tools). A repository works best if it is easy to access and use. \nFor this reason, an on-line, web-based EA repository is recommended. This type of web portal for EA should be located on the enterprise’s internal Local Area Network to promote security of the information while still supporting access by executives, managers, and support staff. Providing easy access to EA information and artifacts is essential for their use in planning, management, and decision-making. The EA repository is intended to provide this type of easy access by being a one-stop-shop for all of the documents that populate the various levels of an EA framework.
