A company, planning to introduce tool support for enterprise architecture (EA) management, finds itself confronted with an ever changing market of tools and vendors from a variety of different backgrounds. This paper sketches the approach we have taken in a survey on these tools. The evaluation criteria used are related to tool requirements, which were developed in cooperation with EA management practitioners. Complementing these requirements, we detail on general results of the survey and outline important strengths and weaknesses of the tools, identifying distinct approaches for EA management as found in the tools. Concluding, we give indications on potential future topics in this area, interesting both for tool vendors and academia.
