Towards a Reconstruction of Theoretical Foundations of Enterprise Architecture Management

fulltext etc. no fulltext attached
Enterprise architecting has grown to a well-established discipline. Based on the design science research paradigm, a multitude of models and methods have been developed and real-world practices have been assessed. However, as the development of EAM has been rather practice-driven, a theoretical foundation for EAM seems to be lacking. Based on a set S1 of well-known EAM properties and EAM means-ends relationships, this paper addresses this gap by identifying an initial set S2 of information systems theories that can serve as theoretical grounding for EAM. As a first iteration of Hevner’s Rigor Cycle, we identified thirteen theories that can be related to EAM and have the potential to serve as a theoretical grounding for more profound EAM design theories.
