Enterprise Context

Definition - What does Enterprise Context mean?

Enterprise context is a concept or resource that involves identifying the stakeholders, environmental trends and aspects of business processes in order to create an enterprise architecture (EA). Some experts refer to enterprise context plans or models as a deliverable for an EA design.

Techopedia explains Enterprise Context

Enterprise context is also called "business architecture artifact" because it reveals data about the enterprise and its goals. An enterprise context model is often a visual representation of the stakeholders and parties involved in a collaborative process, wherein parts of a business process are integrated well with each other. Other aspects of enterprise context may involve defining a business strategy and looking at conceptual models for growth and expansion, or considering requirements for business changes.

Along with a number of other steps, enterprise context work can help with the process of renovating an enterprise architecture, which is critically important not only to day-to-day operations, but also to long-term goals. Companies are upgrading to more and more advanced enterprise systems and IT setups that help accomplish growth, better sales, more efficient product cycles, etc. Enterprise context is a step in the process of evaluating what businesses use to succeed.
