How EiM is applied to create an iEM also depends upon the needs of the enterprise.
The iEM for system and services was modeled in SharePoint to enable specific archtitectural data to be delivered to specific users with point-and-click access to all data needed to perform the user's specific job.
The most complex and largest application of EiM to construct an integrated enterprise model (iEM) is an engineering design-based application for custom, complex system and service development and operations based on INCOSE and ITIL principals and compliance to ISO and CMMI industry standards.
The level to which EiM is applied depends upon the needs of the enterprise.
Beyond the traditional EA-related usages, the data and relationships within an iEM can be applied to supporting operational activities, allowing everyone to benefit from the modeling. For example, the integrated enterprise workflow for systems and services is used by program and project management, and by product, system and service development teams, to analyze, plan, and execute development and operations projects and programs.
The EiM methodology was used to design an integrated enterprise framework (iEF) capable of handling the magnitude of the most complex application, the largest possible model, containing the most types of resources.
This allows models in all business domains and applications to be quickly and efficiently modeled to the appropriate scale based on the reuse of prefabricated, correct-by-construction, architectural elements.
