Alan points to FCW’s Feds work on melding architectures, which is about the challenges in aligning OMB’s five reference model Federal Enterprise Architecture – the “meta-architecture” for all the agency efforts – with the enterprise architecture work done at agency level.
Meta-architecture (slide 7). Hmmm. I like the concept ‘meta-architecture’, which incidentally came up the other day, in a slightly different context – since we’re working a lot with Meta Group, our white paper is influenced by them, and our models and concepts were called “Meta-architecture” by someone. Ah, the joy of language. Ah, the joy of layers of meaning.
