Enterprise Architecture



Enterprise Architecture tends to be a grossly mis-understood subject by General Management and the Information Technology community alike. Enterprise Architecture has everything to do with managing Enterprise complexity and Enterprise change and relates to information technology only in so far as information technology may be one of the choices that an Enterprise can make with regard to Enterprise operations. In my article, “Enterprise Architecture: The Issue of the Century”, I argued that the Enterprise that can accommodate the concepts of Enterprise Architecture will have the opportunity to stay in the game … and the Enterprise that cannot accommodate the concepts of Enterprise Architecture is not going to be in the game. In recent history we have seen a lot of enterprises falling out of the game: small … and large; private … and public.

• The Enterprise Ontology – Industry Standard Definitions of Architecture
• Architecture IS Architecture IS Architecture – Enterprise Architecture is not arbitrary
• Ontologies Versus Methodologies – “and” NOT “either/or”
