Abstract: Enterprise architecture (EA) is essential for both public and private organisations as it provides a holistic approach to align information technology with business objectives. EA implementation is a multidisciplinary, complicated, and endless process. Therefore, successful EA implementation calls for highly-skilled personnel possessing diverse competencies. During the last years a few attempts have been made to identify these competencies. Current works however, provide heterogeneous and fragmented views of the domain, do not distinguish between private and public sector employees and are not interoperable with other generic competence frameworks. This paper aims at proposing an EA competence framework (EA-CF) that provides a holistic view of EA competencies and overcomes existing limitations. We anticipate that EA-CF will assist in obtaining an in depth understanding of EA competencies, will assist in the efficient training of future enterprise architects, and will facilitate the incorporation of EA competencies in more generic competence frameworks.
