The CORA targets organizations that want to be both in control of their IT landscape and need the ability to respond quickly when business needs change, new business models have to be implemented or new technologies needs to be applied. Also organizations that are faced with a complex IT landscape, consisting of Packaged Based Solutions, Legacy and/or Custom made systems should benefit from the CORA.
Within organizations various target groups can use the CORA to support their work. Enterprise architects are supported in describing Enterprise Architecture layers and levels. Solution/Software architects get an instrument check on how their architecture fits and/or has to fit into the overall Enterprise Architecture. They can also use the CORA as a starting point in designing their own (software) architecture.
