Enterprise Architecture: Enterprise Context Model (ECM)

When trying to define a business, it is critical to understand the context of the business such as the following to ensure that those who are involved have a clear understanding of the business, their roles and responsibilities.

  • Mandate
  • Objectives
  • Key stakeholders (organizations and/or individuals) and the relationships
  • Accountability relationships with stakeholders

Enterprise Context Model (ECM) is a Business Architecture artifact that provides a single view of the key stakeholders involved in the business. It also establishes a framework to further breakdown and understand the business.

Here is my attempt to come up with an ECM for City of Edmonton’s Graffiti Management Program.

Refer to “Architecture for the Business – By the Business” presentation by I&IT (Office of the Corporate Chief Technology Office) if you are interested in learning more about Business Architecture and ECM.
