Abstract: In this paper we propose a framework based on multi-criteria analysis as a way to conduct an enterprise architecture scenario evaluation and selection. The proposed solution supports decision making, by evaluating each of the available scenarios using metrics derived from defined goals, based on a Goal-Question-Metric methodology. In this approach the overall goals or objectives (the problem’s criteria) are on the top of the GQM-tree, whereas questions of stakeholders and measurable attributes (also called ``metrics'' are represented as intermediate and leave nodes. According to the multi-criteria analysis each of the alternatives x is evaluated on each metric i, by means of a value function Vi(x). Then, since every criterion has a weight which represents its relative importance in the analysis, the final overall result of each alternative scenario is therefore computed through a weighted sum model.
