The United States Constitution provides a governance framework that enables Americans to gracefully transition power, overcome economic depressions, survive World Wars and unify through tolerance of diversity and love of freedom.

Enterprise Architecture is a descriptive framework that provides a standards-based organizational and technical methodology designed to provide business processing simulations which help anticipate future needs with greater agility thus aligning business objectives with ongoing IT capital investments.

What domain the organization belongs to, what services it provides or consumes, and what guides its behavior and decision-making are concisely articulated in its business strategy as Enterprise Architecture models and artifacts for analysis.

Enterprise Architecture methodologies delineate an organizational boundary by defining its Domain Model, identifying the services provided or consumed, analysis of alternatives and planning a transition strategy to best achieve operational efficiency.
