In the times of increasing information volumes it is virtually impossible to harness the complexity and changes of the enterprise processes and requirements without taking into account the aid of the enterprise architectures, which are being supported by methodologies surveyed in this article. Software architectures for them serve as templates for system development processes and can describe the basic infrastructures for hardware, software and networks as well as their interrelations. Each involved participant fashions its own view on the final system, a developer or an architect alike, thus constituting rationale for the introduction of viewpoints at different abstraction levels provided in this article.
