By necessity, these should be requirements which, when not attained, have a high impact on the goals of the key stakeholders. This focus allows an enterprise architecture to be used effectively when steering and coordinating transformation programs and projects. The meaning of the enterprise architecture then becomes that it provides a normative restriction of design freedom toward projects and programs. 6 Other Forms of Architecture As indicated by the definition in the previous section, enterprise architectures describe the most fundamental aspects and choices of the enterprise, close to its strategy.

The Open Group Architecture Framework (TOGAF 2009) is a standardized method for enterprise architecture. TOGAF is maintained by The Open Group, which is a consortium of literally hundreds of organizations covering both the profit and not-for-profit sectors. TOGAF finds its origins in the Technical Architecture Framework for Information Management TAFIM (1996), developed by the Department of Defense of the United States of America. At the start of 1995, the first version of TOGAF was developed, as an evolution of TAFIM.

From this angle, an enterprise architecture presents itself as a prescriptive and normative concept (Hoogervorst 2004). Hoogervorst (2009) states that normative guidance is the essential purpose of architecture. He considers architecture to be a prescriptive concept that expresses ex ante how systems must become, rather than a descriptive concept that depicts ex post how systems are. The concept of architecture principles, as will be elaborated in the remainder of this book, is prominent in the regulative role of enterprise architecture.
