Worldwide, Enterprise Architectures (EAs) have been gaining popu- larity due to benefits, like, e.g., increased transparency of dependencies between business and technology, reduction of efforts for system customization or opti- mizing integrated and enterprise-wide processes and matching actions. Private businesses and the public sector show significant differences in the use of EA. Thus, the application of reference architectures originating from the private sec- tor for purposes in the public sector creates substantial challenges. For a better understanding of the challenges, it is necessary to identify the most affected EA layers and the insufficiently defined, modeled or described elements of EA models in general. Based on an investigation in the Germany, this paper identi- fies weaknesses of EA in the public sector, like an incompletely modeled tech- nology layer, and also strengths, such as existing definitions, descriptions and models of enterprise objectives. These findings are the foundation for deriving actions and recommendations to strengthening the existing structure and turning it into a coherent overall architecture for federal and state agencies in Germany.
