2014 (English)In: CAiSE 2014 Forum, Springer , 2014Conference paper (Refereed)
Decentralization of organizations and subsequent change of their management and operation styles requires changes in organization’s processes and heavily involves IT. Enterprise Architecture (EA) frameworks fit to primarily centralized organizational structures, and as such have shortcomings when used in decentralized organizations. We illustrate this idea on the example of one organization in Higher Education sector that faces decentralization of its structure and has to adapt to it. Overcoming these deficiencies requires some new principles to be introduced and incorporated into the EA knowledge. In particular for IT governance, in this study we present how peer-to-peer principles, such as peer production, can offer more suitable governance over current EA frameworks as they are able to better match the decentralized components an organizational structure.
