ABSTRACT
Three schools of thought on enterprise architecture exist, each with its own belief system (definitions, concerns, assumptions, and limitations). A novel taxonomy of these schools creates a starting point for resolving terminological challenges to help establish enterprise architecture as a discipline.
INDEX TERMS
Network architecture, Enterprise resource planning, Computer architecture, Technological innovation, Strategic planning, Taxonomy, enterprise engineering, enterprise architecture, systems thinking, organizational learning
