EA will begin with targeted projects and departments. Over time as the EA process matures, the effort will expand. The long-term scope is to include all IT effort at the University of Michigan in the strategic planning.
EA can be broken down into three major functions:
- Facilitate the flow of IT-related information between the various IT departments at Michigan.
- Provide and communicate a technology roadmap to all interested parties.
- Recommend implementation strategies for specific technologies and products.
