Enterprise Architecture Enables Processes Paper
A well-defined and implemented EA contributes significantly to each of the phases of the SDLC. For this assignment you will write a 3-5 page paper (not counting any cover sheet or reference pages) that explains briefly what enterprise architecture (EA) is and then how it supplements and enables each of the phases of the system development lifecycle (SDLC):
2. Systems Analysis and Requirements phase – for this phase, please consider quality or non-functional requirements or the “ilities” (security, maintainability, etc.)
3. System Design phase
4. Development phase
5. Integration and Test phase
6. Implementation phase
7. Operations and Maintenance phase
You should explain how EA enables each phase, how it fits into each phase, and what unique qualities or capabilities a well-defined EA contributes that might not otherwise be available to the organization. Very important!
Please do not just cite the various stages without ensuring that you emphasize how EA helps to enable each phase.
The use of at least three external scholarly resources (other than class materials) is required. You should use scholarly journals. Remember to correctly cite and reference all sources using APA format.
