This enterprise architecture diagram sample was redesigned from the illustration of the NIH Enterprise Architecture website. [enterprisearchitecture.nih.gov/Pages/Framework.aspx]
"Enterprise architecture is a comprehensive framework used to manage and align an organization's Information Technology (IT) assets, people, operations, and projects with its operational characteristics. In other words, the enterprise architecture defines how information and technology will support the business operations and provide benefit for the business.
It illustrates the organization’s core mission, each component critical to performing that mission, and how each of these components is interrelated. These components include:
(1) Guiding principles,
(2) Organization structure,
(3) Business processes,
(4) People or stakeholders,
(5) Applications, data, and infrastructure,
(6) Technologies upon which networks, applications and systems are built.
Guiding principles, organization structure, business processes, and people don’t sound very technical. That’s because enterprise architecture is about more than technology. It is about the entire organization (or enterprise) and identifying all of the bits and pieces that make the organization work." [enterprisearchitecture.nih.gov/Pages/what.aspx]
The example "NIH IT enterprise architecture framework" was created using the ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software extended with the Enterprise Architecture Diagrams solution from the Management area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.
