It describes the influence EA practice plays on strategy formulation and execution. The course then provides an overview of the role played by EA frameworks and what some of most popular EA frameworks in the industry offer. The course then goes on to describe the key pillars of enterprise architecture, i.e. business, applications, information, and technology architecture domains.
