The Zachman enterprise framework was invented by John Zachman in for The Zachman framework provides a means of classifying an organisation's. Abstract. Emergent behavior is behavior of a system that does not depend on its individual parts, but on their relationships to one another. Such behavior exists.

All relevant data are within the paper and its Supporting Information files. Abstract Knowledge architecture KA establishes the basic groundwork for the successful implementation of a short-term or long-term knowledge management KM program. An example of KA is the design of a prototype before a new vehicle is manufactured. Due to a transformation to large-scale organizations, the traditional architecture of organizations is undergoing fundamental changes. This paper explores the main strengths and weaknesses in the field of KA within large-scale organizations and provides a suitable methodology and supervising framework to overcome specific limitations. This objective was achieved by applying and updating the concepts from the Zachman information architectural framework and the information architectural methodology of enterprise architecture planning EAP. The proposed solution may be beneficial for architects in knowledge-related areas to successfully accomplish KM within large-scale organizations. The research method is descriptive; its validity is confirmed by performing a case study and polling the opinions of KA experts. Introduction Although many frameworks and methodologies have been proposed in the field of KM as depicted in [ 1 ], numerous enterprises have been unable to implement their KM projects despite large monetary investments [ 2 ]. Both technical factors and nontechnical factors are critical to the successful implementation of a KM project. Culture, KA, information technology infrastructure and supportive services are important factors in the successful establishment of a KM project [ 3 , 4 ]. The relationship between KM and KA can be envisaged as follows: KM involves the production, presentation, storage, transfer and transformation of knowledge [ 5 ], whereas KA involves the extraction of knowledge and relevant knowledge managerial processes [ 6 ]. KA is required to ensure the successful implementation of a long-term or short-term KM project [ 7 ].

The dangers from the allure of hype become all too clear as we all watch the results of this event unfold.

As everyone can see, the battle over EA frameworks is predicted to take more than 10 years to sort out, much of it due to the commercialization of that particular aspect of the overall marketplace. Choose source frameworks quickly, recognizing which one is primary as an input to the development and categorization of your EA artifact and your EA program.

Modify and enhance the framework, as required, to support your EA program. Do not attempt to follow a single framework rigidly. Its job is to provide a consistent organizing structure for enterprise architectural concepts, and it should be used pragmatically. Stan Locke, or one of the et al who ran the Zachman International website, appears to have put up their side of the story warts and all in lieu of the landing page for the Zachman International website.

On the replacement page, Stan has indicated that he is capitulating, will not challenge the suit, will close his company and retire.

Presenting an Approach for Conducting Knowledge Architecture within Large-Scale Organizations

This is, as I will share later, a direct violation of the lawsuit filed. A little hunting found a few interesting tidbits on the back pages of Zachman International. John A.

Zachman was neither consulted about nor invited to participate in the EACOE and therefore, that new venture is completely independent of and disassociated with John A. One of these unresolved problems is knowledge architecting, which serves an undeniable role in promoting the likelihood of successful implementation and the modeling of KM projects.

Although different KA frameworks have been proposed, such as the frameworks proposed by Jafari [ 9 ], Lusa [ 10 ], and Zhang [ 11 ], none adequately fulfill the need for conducting KA within large-scale organizations.

The Zachman Framework

KA is a new discipline in which neither a universally accepted codified framework nor a methodology has been established. This paper addresses this shortcoming by reviewing previous KA methods and presenting a suitable methodology and supervising framework for conducting KA within large-scale organizations, which provides well-defined constructs and guiding principles to ensure that large-scale organizations do not deviate from a proper path of KA.

In the next section, the current literature and their insights are reviewed and analyzed.

A method for conducting this research and the details of the proposed solution for KA within large-scale organizations will be provided in the Research Method and the Proposed Solution sections.

After evaluating the proposed solution, the results of this study and recommendations for future studies will be discussed. Literature Review Enterprise architecture is a program supported by frameworks that coordinates various fundamental aspects of an enterprise in a holistic manner.

Formats and Editions of Enterprise architecture : using the Zachman framework []

Its origin dates to , when a new field emerged as a consequence of a paper published by Zachman [ 12 ]; this field was previously known as enterprise information architecture EIA. An EIA relates organizational missions, goals, and objectives to business tasks, activities and relations and to the technology or IT infrastructures required for their execution.

Although several EIA frameworks are directed at different communities, the Zachman framework [ 12 ] shapes the infrastructure for the majority of other EIAs. It describes a holistic model of an enterprise information infrastructure from six perspectives and six abstractions. The major drawback of the Zachman framework is the lack of any guidance on the sequence, process, or implementation of the framework.

The EAP methodology [ 13 ] is a specific attempt to provide guidance for the implementation of the Zachman framework.
