Comparison of Zachman, TOGAF and PeaF – Survey Results


I am continually faced with Organisational and IT related complexity of customers I work with on a daily basis.

As most readers would know, the fundamental purpose of an EA Framework (and associated method(s)) is to manage complexity through visibility, abstraction and governanace and therefore it is important that the framework and method are not overly complex.  

Following up on from a previous post about the new Pragmatic Enterprise Aritecture Framework (PeaF), I thought that interested readers would find the survey results comparing Togaf v9, Zachman and PeaF enlightening.

The founders of PeaF have published the results of how TOGAF v9, Zachman and PeaF compare and the highlevel results are reflected in the graph below.  The data does not say how many contributors were surveyed or what their demographics were but according to the published results on the website, PeaF is smaller and less complex, whilst being easier to use and covering more of the scope of EA.

Underpinning these results is a data table (shown below).

I would be intereseted to hear how much adoption PeaF is getting in the market compared to other frameworks. Case studies would definetly be of interest.
More information on PeaF and how it can be applied can be found at http://www.pragmaticea.com/
