Enterprise Architecture Scope & Functions

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.
