      • The principles:

        • Are enduring general rules and guidelines that inform and support the way an organization sets about fulfilling its mission.

        • Provide the context within which business requirements are expressed.

        • Are derived from the overall business objectives

    • Business Domain Views describing the enterprise architecture from the perspective of key stake holder's viewpoint (Usability view, business goals view, data security view, business function view, business service view etc).

    • Architecture compliance process and strategy should be adopted.
