Enterprise Architecture (EA) is the holistic expression for the main strategies of an enterprise in terms of business, applications and technologies, and the impact they have on its processes and functions. Currently, the CEOs of most businesses are investigating what opportunities are afforded by digitalization. However, despite the benefits of EA, and its possible role in digital transformation, there is a gap in the research regarding how to take advantage of EA in digital transformation. This article explores the concepts of EA and digital transformation based on a set of publications we selected from the area of IS/IT, and addresses some contributions to a methodology that promotes EA planning as a tool for digital transformation. As such, we refer to the dimensions, the approach, and the two phases of development which will contribute to placing EA as a tool for solving the problems of digital transformation initiatives.
