An EA view (filter) can be associated for instance, to every solution and capability. In truth, most representations are views since it is impossible to show in detail all aspects of interest to stakeholders on a single diagram. The EA Framework proposed employs a Model Driven Architecture (MDA) like paradigm by initiating the design of the functional architecture top-down, starting from the Business Reference Model customized for the industry and company, branching down to the whole Enterprise decomposition tree.

Without the synoptic view of an EA, the Enterprise is marred by duplication in platforms, projects, roles, data, applications and even products. Quite often, units of the same company compete with each other and do not share good practices, processes, applications and strategies. From a business perspective, the Enterprise problem is the inflexibility, slow change and high costs of IT. From an IT perspective, it is the lack of business process and requirements clarity, inherited obsolete technologies and the tangled IT spaghetti architecture.
