This article presents the “Enterprise Architecture Reference Cube” which provides guidance to enterprise architects for concepts used in modeling architecture. The Cube faces represent the dimensions to consider in enterprise architectures – the architectural concepts and their relationships to each other. These relationships are defined between the Cube faces and visually presented in three dimensions. A generic process, using the Cube, is provided for developing Enterprise Architectural artifacts. This process guides the developer of the EA in which products should be used in documenting the EA. The development of the EA Reference Cube is the result of the work of the INCOSE ISO/TC184/SC5 liaison team to update the ISO 15704:2000 standard.
