It is a work in progress and as such should not be considered to be a finished complete list at this stage

Eventually Pragmatic EA will map every single FRAMEWORK to every other FRAMEWORK so people can easily compare them in various ways. Once this is done, it will be published for free.

ENTERPRISE - The word Enterprise should be interpreted as a general noun – the name of something - to refer to any and all of these types of thing; public and private companies, government agencies, charities, universities etc. This is not an exhaustive list but illustrates the point.
