EA implementation project without understanding CSFs leads to inappropriate direction and dissatisfaction of EA project. Banking enterprises which have sensitive and important data have to find an appropriate plan to implement the EA. Since understanding the CSFs provide a better solution and right direction for EA implementation, banking enterprises are looking to find it due to insufficient work related to CSFs of EA particularly in banks.

Statistical analyses were used to evaluate proposed CSFs model and investigate the relationship between proposed CSFs and successful EA implementation. The result shows that all proposed CSFs were significant contribute to the model and Governance is the strongest contribution to explaining successful EA implementation. This research result is informational and useful for Enterprise Architects of banking industry and graduate students considering conducting research on EA and practitioners.
