A Very Happy New Year 2017 to all!
After many months of inactivity due to serious personal matters, I am back on my research. As I have to redo my literature review to avoid repeating somebody else work as well as keep myself up-to-date with latest developments in the domain of EA, I am visiting a number of online architecture-related sources. In one of them and more particularly the ISO/IEC/IEEE 42010 website, I came across a table, which provides a fairly comprehensive list with different Architecture Frameworks. Despite the list does not only contain EAFs – I will understand if some of you have difficulties with the definition – the work being invested in putting together all information is pretty amazing. What I find really great is that virtually each row contains a link (GIYF if it is broken) to a pertinent source, information is being regularly updated ( the last update occurred on 23/12/2016), and finally proprietary and largely unknown European EAFs are mentioned such as the CEAF sponsored and still used by the European Commission services.
My aim is to contribute to further improving it and publish shortly a new table with the EAFs that I have analysed for the purpose of my research. Meanwhile, I encourage you to visit the ISO/IEC/IEEE 42010 page .
