    Business and IT alignment remains an ongoing concern for organizations. Enterprise Architecture has emerged as a possible tool for understanding and planning for BIA, but the current range of methods and frameworks for EA do not support precise measurement. In this paper, we propose a set of technologies and concepts - notably goals and computable functions which can be used to provide a measure of equivalence between as-is and to-be enterprise architectures. The goals enable description of business level requirements whilst the functions enable the goals to be evaluated at a technical architecture level. The technology is evaluated with a detailed and authentic case study from higher education.
