EA (Enterprise Architecture) is an instrument that is employed to describe the organization?s structure, business layout and operations within the IT (Information Technology) environment. Different types of organizations extensively employed EA for aligning their business and operations with IT resources. EA may also be employed in non-organizational setting such as service providing agencies; rescue, medical emergency and education services. This paper suggests an EAF (Enterprise Architecture Framework) for non-organizational setting by critically analyzing the top four EAs. The paper also proposes a new m-Health service model based on the mobile GPS (Global Positioning System) for train/rail passengers by employing the ArchiMate modeling language and compares the proposed model with existing service providers.
