For over two decades the Department of Defense Architecture Framework (DoDAF) has served as the bedrock on with architects have conveyed complex architectures to decision makers. Now with advisories accelerating, we must modernize our practice to communicate exponentially more complex architectures while simultaneously reducing the decision-making timeline. Industry has risen to meet this need with the development of the Unified Architecture Framework (UAF).
