FACIN: The Brazilian Government Enterprise Architecture Framework

Vanessa T. Nunes, Claudia Cappelli, Marcus Vinicius Costa


The United Nations point that to raise the efficiency and quality of public services is not just a matter of cutting-edge technologies, but also adopting practices to connect and interoperate governments, which requires a holistic approach. An Enterprise Architecture (EA) initiative is a consistent feature of strategic planning, which assists organizations in understanding how processes/services are automated, as well as helping to reduce organizational complexity and to improve communication, driving organizational change. We describe FACIN, the Brazilian Government EA Framework to support interoperability and digital governance among governmental organizations. FACIN aims to foster intra and inter organizational alignment, and also to provide a basis for the development of methods and best practices to improve the efficiency of public administration and services. In this paper we present the first results and perceptions.
