    Queston: (275 words)
    The "EA as Strategy" (see attached reference part I and II) provides a definition of enterprise architecture that includes the words "standardization" and "integration" as key aspects of the requirements that drive EA. A company wants to transform itself such that all of its divisions operate in a "unification" model.
    What would you need to know about how information and processes are currently used to determine if more emphasis is needed on integration, standardization, or both? If the divisions were currently operating in the "replication" model, what do you think the most obvious changes you would need to see in the target, top level core EA diagram (as compared to the current state)? Be specific please.
