Abstract

The recent rapid development in information systems (ISs) has resulted in a critical need for integration and interoperability between heterogeneous ISs in various domains, using specific commonalities. However, stovepipe systems have been caused due to inconsistencies in planning IS architecture among stakeholders. So far, there has been no research on an enterprise architecture framework (EAF) that can satisfy with the coefficient factors of system architecture (SA) and enterprise architecture (EA). This paper proposes a new EAF that can resolve the problems inherent in existing legacy EAFs and their features. EAFoC (Enterprise Architecture Framework based on Commonality) is based on commonality that can be satisfied as the coefficient factors in both SA and EA within a common information technology (IT) domain. Thus, it should be possible to integrate an established heterogeneous framework for each stakeholder's view. Consequently, the most important contribution of this paper is to establish the appropriate EAFoC for the development of consistent IS architecture, smooth communication among stakeholders, systematic integration management of diversified and complicated new IT technologies, interoperability among heterogeneous ISs, and reusability based on commonality with other platforms.
