Global Enterprise Architecture Organisation

The Global Enterprise Architecture Organisation (GEAO) is the premier resource for Enterprise Architecture professionals around the world.

GEAO is a new not-for-profit organisation created by and for professionals who work in the field of Enterprise Architecture.

Enterprise Architecture reflects the translation of the overall vision of an enterprise into the very fabric of an organisation - its goals, strategies, tactics, policies, processes technology - into everything it does. It is a guiding blueprint that will hold the organisation together as it grows and evolves into the future and works across organisational boundaries and disciplines.

The fast-paced networked economy, together with the multi-disciplinary approach of Enterprise Architecture, requires professionals in this field to work harder than ever to maintain and improve their skills and knowledge. GEAO is designed to fulfil this requirement by providing professional information, support and resources that help professionals to succeed.
