Enterprise Architecture (EA) is gaining acceptability as an approach for strategic alignment of business and IT. While it is widely accepted that EA is essential for optimizing the value of IT in organizations, most IT managers find it difficult to communicate the value of EA using terms meaningful to business decision makers. This paper presents a Value Model for expressing the business value contribution of EA function in organizations. The model aims to communicate the value of EA to stakeholders and senior management using a language that can be understood by business leaders. This simple, two dimensional model relates major Enterprise Architecture activities to key business objectives. High level business metrics are used as a basis of the evaluation of the maturity of Enterprise Architecture function.
