Enterprise Information Architecture (EIA)

Enterprise Information Architecture (EIA) promotes the governance, asset management and sharing of the Commonwealth’s data assets. The Commonwealth Data Governance team is responsible for implementing EIA strategies under four domains:

  • Data Governance: High-level stewardship and management of data architecture and assets; strategic-level planning, monitoring and policy-making to govern the array of data management across the enterprise.
  • Data Asset Management: Management of data asset inventory; metadata defining or describing data assets, including taxonomies, subject areas and information classes; data documentation in metadata repositories.
  • Data Standards: Establishment and maintenance of adopted agreements on common data definitions, specifications and vocabularies for data assets; publication and maintenance of data standards in shared repositories.
  • Data Sharing: Trust framework and legal agreements enabling the exchange of information across organizational domains and source data systems; security, privacy, consent and authorization compliance through applicable law.

The Commonwealth Data Governance team operates within these domains through collaboration with data stewards, business leads, technical leads, security staff and other stakeholders across the enterprise.
