India Enterprise Architecture (IndEA):

  • IndEA is a framework for developing a holistic architecture treating the Government as a single enterprise or more realistically, as an Enterprise of Enterprises, which are functionally interrelated.

  • It is a structured combination of several Reference Models that, together, enable a boundary-less flow of information across the length and breadth of the government and facilitate the delivery of integrated services to the stakeholders, namely, the citizens, businesses and employees.
    • IndEA framework comprises 8 Reference Models, viz., Business, Application, Data, Technology, Performance, Security, Integration and Architecture Governance.

  • It is a comprehensive and convenient framework for developing Enterprise Architecture to support Information and Communication Technology (ICT) enabled transformation across governments.

  • It is a way to establish Unity in Diversity in the domain of e-Governance.
    • Federated Architectural Pattern is chosen for the IndEA framework for better administrative feasibility, need for decentralization of implementations, on-boarding of legacy/ ongoing efforts of e-Governance and above all, the need for state governments to have the flexibility to build state specific ICT services.

Benefits of IndEA:

  • Provide a ONE Government Experience to the citizens and businesses.
  • Enhance the efficiency of delivery of services.
  • Improve the effectiveness of implementation of the developmental and welfare schemes through a holistic performance management.
  • Enhance the productivity of employees and agencies through easy access to information.
