Recommend PEAF?


Yes - Seriously I don't know .. However I liked it .. I may recommend all my architects to spend some time and understand PEAF and ask them to come back whether we can use it for our customers. Since they have very depth knowledge on the Business processe - Senior Architect, SLK Software Services Pvt LTD, India, Jan 2015

This process defines the Meta-model that will be used for gathering and analysing information that is to be stored in the EA Modelling Tool.

Since some EA Modelling Tools have pre-existing and somewhat static Meta-models this process may not be required. However, even if the approach is to use whatever Meta-model that comes with the Tool that will be selected, it is still a good idea to go through this process to identify the initial entities, relationships and views that are initially important to the Enterprise as beginning with a massive and detailed Meta-model can dilute the focus.

Another dimension to be aware of is that whatever Meta-model is chosen, the Meta-model will expand as times goes on and therefore consideration should be given not only to the initial Meta-model but also how that Meta-model will grow over time.


      Find out what Meta-models exist and how they map to the PEAF Ontology.


      Using the Artefacts section of PEAF, decide what Meta-models are required.
