1An enterprise architecture is an ideational blueprint which demonstrates the organization’soperations and structure. The resolute of an enterprise architecture is to arbitrate that how acompany can gain the future and current objectiveseffectively and efficiently. An enterprisearchitecture is the most significant and effective way which allows the organizations to make useof technology and various capabilities of the IT in order to support the objectives and businessgoals of the organization. An enterprise architecture is defined as the solution to formulize theenvironment of an information technology, minimizes cost, and maximizes agility. In otherwords, “enterprise architecture is measured as the aligned and structured collection of variousplans for the embodied representation of the company and the IT geography of an enterprise, inevery kind of state” (Bernus et al., 2012).The Motor Vehicle Department is a comprehensive organization in the guidance ofTransportation's Secretary, and its usual services are capability, processing of tax, andinformation management and safety for overnight transportation. At present, each of the businesslike, processing of tax, credentials, and management of finances has their own processes andsystems. The motor vehicle department has decided the restructure the system of CSI. Themotive of this restructure to place all the smashed processing of motor vehicle department's coreareas of business in single contemporize system that is competent to embody the processes of themotor vehicle department whilst having complete functionality. The newly structured systemshould interface the other system, like motor vehicle department's purchasing, VCIN (VirginiaCriminal Information Network), inventory, system of human resource, system of traffic recordselectronic data, and various other systems. The program of enterprise architecture is the mostappropriate solution which can be used to shift from the present obsolete system to the newcontemporize system. Further, the program of enterprise architecture uses materialize technologyand also the technology which is already in place to gain all the CSI restructure objectives of themotor vehicle department. Moreover, the program of enterprise architecture pertains all requireddisciplines, standards and policies in order to meet the regulations and the laws.Examples of enterprise architecture program benefiting the motor vehicle department:Design and implementation of systems: At present, the department of the motor vehiclehas smashed processes for core areas of the business like credentials, processing of tax,and the management of the finances. The program of enterprise architecture can also help
2in designing and implementing the single contemporize system in order to place all thesystems and processes together.Alignment of business IT: using the program of the enterprise architecture make sure theunderstanding of department of motor vehicle’s objectives of the business likecentralizing the varied applications, offering a financial component, enriching the betterand advanced security, and by ascertaining business goals of the department of motorvehicle. Program of the enterprise architecture helps the company to select the besttechnology to the existing and present technology in order to achieve the business goalsof the department of motor vehicle.Requirements engineering: The documentation of enterprise architecture helps in order tomaximize the speed of gathering the required information for the department of motorvehicles CSI restructured system from the users, stakeholders, and the customers.Further, the documentation makes sure the accuracy of the requirements.The complexity of IT: Integration of the process and system of the department of a motorvehicle makes the new system complicated. The program of enterprise architecture helpsin minimizing the complexity of the system as much as possible.Project management: Enterprise architecture demonstrates each role of the projectstakeholder and maximizes the communication and collaboration among them.One example is that which Aparna Raman and Anjali Kaushik demonstrated in theirstudy that how the enterprise architecture is used to the system of healthcare in India. “ Anapproach of enterprise architecture to the information system development of health enablesmore significant inter relationships which are being unfold including various components whichare required to be aligned to various parts and minimizing the incentives and risk offragmentation, replication and lack of interoperability” (Kaushik, A., & Raman, A. 2015).Another example demonstrates that hoe enterprise architecture is used in Dell. Dell is known asthe main manufacturer of the personal computers across the world. Dell uses it EA team in orderto figure out the direction for future for the team of IT with a road map of three years. Accordingto Dell, the usage of enterprise architecture is to reach the business goals, the company requiredto change the infrastructure of IT. The process includes the consolidation of various multi-national systems in order to improvise the efficiency, minimize the cost, and administer thecommon standards (Chae et al., 2014).
