In present Enterprise Architecture Management there is a conceptual gap between very complex methodologies on the one hand and usually methodology-agnostic query-based tool support on the other hand. As a result, Enterprise Architecture Management is often unable to tap its full potential. Issues for possible improvement are described in this paper. We postulate the hypotheses that the indicated deficiencies can be corrected by using EAM tools which consider and model EAM methodologies and their underlying activities as processes and are able to actively manage, steer and support these processes. Initial architectural considerations for such a tool as well as a corresponding research roadmap are presented.
