The Zachman Model

Federal Enterprise Architectural Framework (FEAF)
Coming later in 1999, the Federal Enterprise Architectural Framework (FEAF) is an approach towards enterprise architecture designed by Chief Information Officers to facilitate shared development of common processes and information across governments and their federal agencies. It’s an ideal approach for large organisations that need to balance sharing large amounts of data with the safety and governance of said data.
Department of Defence Architecture Framework (DoDAF)
The Department of Defence Architecture Framework (DoDAF) model is used by the said department of the US Government by CIO to identify areas of development and maintenance for its enterprise architecture. This model differs from the aforementioned ones due to its ability to visualise these concerns specifically for stakeholders, which is particularly useful for communicating issues and value cases to decision-makers.
The Open Group Architectural Framework (TOGAF)
The Open Group Architectural Framework (TOGAF) is an enterprise architecture framework designed to help organisations define their requirements and organise them prior to beginning a project. Theoretically, this helps an enterprise architecture project run faster and with fewer mistakes. It also helps an organisation to stay focused on its specific needs. It is often depicted as a looped circle with ongoing, repeating checks.
