In this paper we discuss the concept of enterprise business architecture. We explain a preliminary study the concept and, based on a case study, discuss its relevance, operation, relationship with strategy and business models, and value for Indonesia higher education. Enterprise business architecture contributes to clarify the complexity within an organization and form a useful starting point from which to develop functional, information, process and application architectures. In addition, an explicitly enterprise business architecture helps to structure the responsibilities within organization (higher education), and within the primary process as well as with regard to IT-support. Enterprise business architectures contribute to adequate IT strategies in order to manage the resources for critical business activities and how to manage the development and support for business efficiently.
