Goal Based Alignment of Enterprise Architectures

Balbir S. Barn, Tony Clark

Abstract

Business and IT alignment remains an ongoing concern for organizations. In this paper, we propose a set of technologies and concepts - notably goals and computable functions which can be used to provide a measure of equivalence between as-is and to-be enterprise architectures.
