The design and evolution of an Enterprise Architecture (EA) is a challenging and complex task. A participative approach to collaborative EA management is needed to support the collaboration of all people involved in the process of EA design and evolution. In this paper the concept of a semantic collaboration tool for collaborative EA management is presented. This includes the concept of a semantic wiki-like collaboration tool for collaborative EA management and a EA ontology as a formal representation of the EA. In addition, the prototypical implementation of the semantic collaboration environment and its architecture are described. Finally, the benefits of the approach are discussed.
