Integrated Enterprise Architecture Framework

There are so many flavors of enterprise architecture frameworks that one can easily lose count - Zachman, ToGAF, DoDAF etc. etc. This is also a century of collaboration - companies/organizations working together for specific purpose and then going their respective way after.

What do we do when two companies that want to partner have two different enterprise architecture frameworks? One can envision an endless debate on which enterprise architecture framework is the best or try to find a way to foster collaboration. If you chose to do the latter then you need a mechanism/framework to integrate the disparate enterprise architecture frameworks. This paper might be a good point to start.

This paper provides a single "integrated" enterprise architecture framework to ease communication between Zachman enterprise architecture framework, Four Domain Architecture framework, TOGAF, and RM-ODP.
