According to workshop developer Scott Bernard, enterprise architecture is "the analysis and documentation of an enterprise in its current and future states from a strategy, business and technology perspective" (EA = S + B + T). It helps to integrate and manage IT resources from a strategy and business-driven viewpoint. During the course, Scott Bernard's enterprise architecture framework called "EA³ Cube" will be used as a tool for explaining what the basic elements of EA are, and how such a framework is used in documenting your enterprise architecture. Every now and then, we will also look at what TOGAF, Zachman, Sogeti's DYA, and others have to offer.

This "Fundamentals of Enterprise Architecture" course is intended to provide executives, managers, IT staff, enterprise architects, and other interested individuals with exposure to the basic concepts of enterprise architecture.
