The term “Reference Architecture”, within the Information Technology community, has various meanings, multiple purposes and uses, varying levels of detail and abstraction, and very little common guidance. The Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense (DASD) for Information Management, Integration and Technology (IMI&T)/DoD Deputy CIO requested a position on and strategy for Reference Architecture in the Department. The Reference Architecture Description document is in response to this request. The objective is to provide useful guidance and direction on the development and use of Reference Architecture as a tool to guide and constrain architecture and solution development.
