What is the purpose of an EA Management Plan?
The EA Management Plan documents the enterprise’s performance gaps, resource requirements, planned solutions, a sequencing plan, and a summary of the current and future architecture. The Plan also describes the EA governance process, the implementation methodology, and the documentation framework. It is a living document that is updated at regular intervals (e.g., annually) to provide clear version control for changes in current and future views of EA components and artifacts throughout the framework. The EA Management Plan should be archived in the on-line EA repository to support easy access to the information and to promote the linkage of EA to other IT management processes.
