Abstract: Organizations need a holistic view of their information assets in order to lead a digital transformation. Information assets can be obtained from modeling the Enterprise Architecture (EA) of the organization. However, the current EA modeling methods have been criticized for being heavy and rigid. In fact, EA modeling methods present similar problems to those faced by traditional software development (waterfall) methods. We propose that EA modeling could benefit from ideas presented in the Agile Manifesto. Previous research already pointed out the importance of finding the ”ideal” boundaries for the intersection between agile software development methods and EA practices. In this paper, we apply the Design Science Research Methodology (DSRM) to propose an Agile Enterprise Architecture Modeling Method based on agile principles and values. The proposal was demonstrated in two organizations, from which we extracted evidence such as continuous deliveries, short interactions (Sprints), pro ximity to customers, and systematic improvements in the process. We conclude that our proposal can improve EA modeling. (More)
