Visualization are a common means to deal with the complexity faced in the young discipline of enterprise architecture (EA) management. Yet, no commonly accepted standard has evolved to visually describe the EA. Similar to information models, in the domain of EA management visualizations tend to be stakeholder-specific and are often handcrafted images.
To address the stakeholder-specific nature of EA visualizations, this research endavor targets to provide visualizations based on semi-structured data enabling end-users to dynamically configure their own visualizations used during the decision making process.
