*) Structure
*) Technology
*) Process
*) Resources.

These are the major pillars of an organisation. A Business analyst, analyze these before starting the project, which is called as Enterprise Analysis. 

So, coming to conclusion, enterprise analysis is an activity of business analysis, that helps an enterprise to identify the business opportunity, determine the optimum project investment path for that enterprise and finally, implement new business and technical solutions.

Enterprise analysis (also known as strategic enterprise analysis or company analysis) is defined as focusing “on understanding the needs of the business as a whole, its strategic direction, and identifying initiatives that will allow a business to meet those strategic goals.”[1] Enterprise analysis involves a thorough examination of not only the business problem (need) and its proposed business solution (if one already exists), but also an in-depth look into whether the proposed solution is truly the best solution, a detailed analysis of what the solution entails, its risks, and its feasibility in the existing organizational climate. Because so much research and examination are involved in the process of enterprise analysis work, they are routinely done at a project’s inception. (Or, for agile projects, they are done throughout the project.)

Enterprise Analysis/strategy analysis/company analysis is one of the Business Analyst activities which focuses on understanding the need of business as a whole and identify the initiatives for business to meet the strategic goals. The analysis involves not only examination of Business problems/needs, but also examines the proposed Business Solution in terms of Feasibility, Cost and Risk. It includes Strategic Planning, Business Architecture development and Business Case development. The large organization has own separate group (strategic Planning/ corporate planning) to perform the task, but sometime Business Analyst has to perform this task.

Business Analysis is the practice of enabling change in an organizational context, by defining needs and recommending solutions that deliver value to stakeholders.
On the other hand, Enterprise Analysis is a knowledge area describing the Business analysis activities to identify business opportunities, build a Business Architecture, determine the optimum project investment path for that enterprise and finally, implement new business and technical solutions.

Business Analysis is the discipline of identifying business needs and determining solutions to business problems. Solutions often include a systems development component, but may also consist of process improvement, organizational change or strategic planning and policy development

An EA's role is to translate business requirements into capabilities that can be cost-effectively implemented, predictably managed, and reliably controlled.

BA's are primarily tasked with requirements generation and facilitation of communications with technical groups to make sure those requirements are reliably implemented. In this regards, while an EA has both feet firmly planted on both sides of the business-IT divide, the BA (even an IT BA) is weighted towards the business.
Most organizations separate the roles of the BA and EA.

'Business Analysis' is a research based identification of business needs and determining solutions to business problems, are often done in concert with IT, whereas 'Enterprise Analysis' is the foundational research that undergirds any successful set of requirements. In addition to being a crucial starting point, enterprise analysis is continually referenced and refined throughout any business analysis endeavor, particularly in agile development.
According to BABOK, “It is through enterprise analysis activities that business requirements are identified and documented.”

Business Analysis is essentially identifying business needs and recommending relevant solutions that will effectively solve business related problems. In other words, business analysis is a way of enabling change within the organisation in the context of how the organisation works. This involves the Business Analyst’s ability to work with the said organisation’s stakeholders in eliciting the requirements, analysing, documenting and managing these requirements and help delivering the solutions that will drive the change that the organisation hopes to achieve.
Enterprise analysis on the other hand is understanding the needs of the business on the whole, its strategic direction and identifying the steps that would be needed to take in order to achieve those strategic goals. In other words, enterprise analysis not only focuses on the business needs and the recommended solutions but also if the recommended solution is the best solution for the organisation. This analysis involves a detailed research into the scope, risk and feasibility of the solution into the existing organisational environment.
