Description

The power of visual analysis of Enterprise Architecture (EA) model tends to diminish when we deal with large and complex viewpoints. However, we still can extract useful information from them. In this work, we apply ideas from the Design Structure Matrix (DSM) theory to derive enterprise architecture viewpoints from primary models already available at organizations. In order to do so, we propose four \ derivation mechanisms. Subsequently, we apply network analysis metrics to those new viewpoints in three empirical datasets. With our suggested approach, it was possible to derive cross -layer viewpoints, \ amplifying the analysis possibilities for experts through the creation of “non-standard/implicit” visualizations of the enterprise architecture which have proven useful to those experts.
