This research uses Enterprise Architecture (EA) as a Systems Engineering foundation to develop a method of assessment and prioritization of Knowledge Management requirements. Knowledge Management System (KMS), tools, and Knowledge Repository play key roles in EA transformation from “As-Is” to the “To-Be” state. The research identifies the KMS attributes that are essential elements of an EA including organization system process, and IT infrastructure.
The research explores EA long term view of an organization’s processes, systems and technologies for building capabilities and matching them with KM techniques, and the factors affecting successful implementation. The research identifies needs of KMS for agile knowledge based-based enterprise. The research methodology based on survey of Government and Private companies seeks answers to two probing questions. First, what are the barriers of KMS implementation EA? Second, what are the benefits of integrating KMS with EA? Statistical correlation is performed to determine group variation between respondents Government and Private, Large and Small, Executive Management and Knowledge Worker, and Product vs. Service Organization. It is determined that methodical application of system processes and techniques are vital for successful EA transformation.
