Architecture Framework

ISO 42010: "An architecture framework is defined as the conventions, principles and practices for the description of architectures established within a specific domain of application and/or community of stakeholders."1

To conform to the 113 Standard, an architecture framework must specify:

  • the identification of concerns;
  • the identification of stakeholders having those concerns;
  • architecture viewpoints that frame those concerns; and
  • correspondence rules integrating those viewpoints.

During the development of ISO/IEC/IEEE 42010Survey of Architecture Frameworks was developed and can be viewed on the www.iso-architecture.org website. Most, but not all, of these frameworks related to the practice of enterprise architecture from an information technology viewpoint.
