ENTERPRISE ARCHITECTURE IS NOT THE ANSWER – IT IS PART OF THE ANSWER
By Terry Blevins, Fellow of The Open Group, Enterprise Architect at Enterprise Wise LLC || Even though I have great belief in Enterprise Architecture, it should not be thought of as a Silver Bullet. Enterprise Architecture isn’t the answer to life, the universe, and everything (we all know that answer is 42). Yet, applied correctly, Enterprise Architecture can be an essential part of an answer.

EA as a Profession -real possibility or an unfettered ambition
This bring me to the current topic in hand – if we want to be recognized as professionals like engineers, doctors, accountants, even lawyers, electrician and plumbers, we need to define what is that we do and how does it serve the public. Only then we can have our effort recognized as a profession and find a way to get ourselves entrenched in legislation.

Enterprise Architects and Politics in the Organization
Politics, with a small “p” exist in every organization. There are good politics and times to use them and there are bad politics and ways to deal with them. Enterprise Architects will inevitably run into bad politics and must first know how to recognize them and then be armed with tactics for addressing them.

What EAs need to know about Risk Management and Open FAIR – A Conversation with Jim Hietala
How would you define Risk Management in terms of how it affects Enterprise Architecture? There are two notions of risk that play in when you’re talking about Enterprise Architecture. One is—and the way that it’s described currently in TOGAF® 9.1—is that there are sections on risk that are really related to project risk—projects that start and don’t finish, things like that. That’s a pretty narrow subset of Risk Management. The larger context has to do with things like security risk and other risks that broadly fall into Enterprise Risk as a discipline.

Future Shock: Why IT Needs to Embrace Agile Development or Be Left Behind
By Allen Brown, President and CEO, The Open Group In his 1970 bestseller, Future Shock, futurist Alvin Toffler predicted that the rate of technological change and progress was beginning to accelerate at a rate faster than what people are often ready for or can handle. Looking over the course of history—from agrarian societies through the industrial age to our current post-industrial age in which more people work in service-oriented fields than agricultural ones—Toffler noted that the rapid changes brought on by technology often leave people in a state of “future shock.”

Considering a Code of Ethics for Enterprise Architects
Considering a Code of Ethics for Enterprise Architects By Steve Nunn, CEO, Association of Enterprise Architects As a professional association, the Association of Enterprise Architects (AEA) in part exists to provide guidance for Enterprise Architects with their careers and career paths. Although many people in the industry have been thinking about career paths for Enterprise Architects for quite some time, there has been no organization that has taken on the (perhaps daunting) task of pulling together requirements and qualifications for practicing Enterprise Architects.
