A paper on Enterprise Architecture (EA) Documentation has been accepted for publication at the 46th Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences (HICSS).
Current research activities seek to automate the EA data collection process by integrating existing EA information sources of operative systems. However, a comprehensive analysis of possible information sources and their appropriateness for EA is not yet provided.
To build an empirical basis, the author team (Ruth Breu, Matthias Farwick, Matheus Hauder, Florian Matthes, and Sascha Roth) presents an empirical analysis of information sources for automated EA documentation endeavors. The paper includes findings of a survey conducted on the appropriateness of specific EA information sources for automation with respect to provided data types and data quality.
