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."[bib]Hilliard2011[/bib]

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 website. Most, but not all, of these frameworks related to the practice of enterprise architecture from an information technology viewpoint.
