Reference Architecture

The best example of a Reference Architecture is the Federal Enterprise Architecture Reference Models.

FEAF Reference Models


There are 5 reference models:

  • Performance Reference Model
  • Business Reference Model
  • Service Component Reference Model
  • Data Reference Model
  • Technical Reference Model

Because these reference models are business and service focused they provide a good basis for creating Service Categories for classifying Application Services, Infrastructure Services and Application Components.
The coverage of the categories is fairly complete.
