How was Training?

“Very positive. It made me think about what EA really is and the part I can play as a business systems analyst representing the Enterprise Architecture Office.” - Business Systems Analyst, Board of Equalization, USA, Jan 2015

Recommend PEAF?

“Yes - PEAF is one of the frameworks which can be used for starting thinking about EA. I think, that "pragmatic" approach can lead for success.” - IT Architect, Ceska Pojistovna a.s., Czech Republic, May 2010

MACE is an ontology used to categorise information relating to the operational structure of something:

Methods

Information about what is being done and how it is being done. E.g. Functions, Processes, Practices, Activities, Phases, Disciplines.

Artefacts

Information about the things that are being consumed and produced by the methods. E.g. Products, Services, Materials, Information.

Culture

Information about the People that are being used to perform the Methods. E.g. People, Values, Ethics, Trust, Psychology.

Environment

Information about the technical Environment that is used to execute the Methods and work with the Artefacts.

This Environment includes Information technology (which is a large part) but also includes other technologies. For example if your company is Shell Oil, then Chemical and Biological Technology is also very important – perhaps even more so than Information Technology!).
