What are Enterprise Architecture Tools?
Enterprise architecture (EA) tools are software applications designed to support enterprise architects and other business and IT stakeholders with strategically driven planning, analysis, design and execution. EA tools support strategic and tactical decision making by capturing and connecting context and information across business, information, solution and technology domains, along with other relevant architectural viewpoints. The EA tool market consists of a diverse range of vendors. These vendors offer software tools that enable EA to deliver a strategic planning discipline that drives targeted business outcomes. EA tools store, structure, analyze and present information related to EA. This information aides in the investment, development and delivery of IT solutions that enable business success. EA tools also focus on diagnostic, actionable, operational and enabling deliverables that support projects targeting business. EA tools help with planning and executing business strategy.
