The objectives of this research are to determine and confirm the influential factors regarding the success of implementing the enterprise architecture for government organizations. The methodology adopted in this study is an analysis of relevant documents, including interviews with 5 experts in the area. The research also determines the composition of factors that affects the successful implementation of the enterprise architecture. The Delphi technique from 7 relevant experts was used. Furthermore, the research gathered the data from 30 government projects to determine and confirm the influential factors in terms of successful implementation. The result obtained 72 success factors related to enterprise architecture for government organizations and can be categorized into 7 main groups in various areas which are Architecture development, Business linkage, Senior management involvement,Operating unit participation, Architecture Communication, EA governance and IT investment and acquisition strategy. In addition, these factors can be seen and confirmed by 98.74% of appearance rate from 30 successfully completed government's projects.
