Asset and Enterprise Architecture Repository

In the near future, all economic and governmental organizations will need an Asset and Enterprise Architecture Repository to survive.

An Asset and Enterprise Architecture Repository is the content store for all data and information related to the organization's current assets (structured into an "as-is" architecture) and its "to-be" architecture.  The term assets might be limited to the organization's physical assets, but can additionally include its processes, strategies, mission, vision, and personnel (attributed with their skills and talents). 

In the case of SOA, the enterprise architecture must include its processes and might include its vision, mission, and strategies.  For organizations intent on using SOA, these inclusions shift the responsibilities for the processes  of the organization to the IT sub-organization and make Enterprise Architecture, as a decision-making process very important: a major process paradigm shift.
