The EA-T8 course starts soon.
I’ve been looking at potential extra-curricular course material about enterprise architecture. Here is what I have on my list right now:
Introduction to the theme
Nicholas G. Carr (2003) IT doesn’t matter, Harvard Business Review
Marc Demarest (1998) CityWare: Information Technology Planning And Urban Planning
John Hagel and John Seely Brown (2002) Break On Through to the Other Side: A Missing Link in Redefining the Enterprise (PDF)
On June 13 2003 the Danish Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation published a White Paper on Enterprise Architecture.
DGEAF (Danish Government-wide Enterprise Architecture Framework):
- EAS – EA strategy
- EBA – enterprise business architecture
- EIA – enterprise information architecture
- ESA – enterprise solution architecture
- ETA – enterprise technical architecture
I’ve listed some material for these areas below:
Assuming we can’t assume the students have an academic background, we might have to start with some basic stuff.
But quickly on to EAS.
Maybe we should use the IAC white paper on Interoperability Strategy – Concepts, Challenges, and Recommendations (more white papers at the IAC-EA SIG site, for example, the one on maturity.)
Governance is a central issue.
Maybe a case? Vetarans Affairs! With Zachman and all.
Look into different strategic approaches:
Scott W. Ambler (2003) Agile Enterprise Architecture: Beyond Enterprise Data Modeling
Ambler’s essay is a summary of a chapter in:
McGovern, J et al (2003) The Practical Guide to Enterprise Architecture, Prentice Hall
(system vs framework? hmmmmm…..)
Besides work that can be bought, what is central to EBA?
John Hagel and John Seely Brown (2002) Control versus Trust: Mastering a Different Management Approach (PDF)
John Seely Brown & Paul Duguid (2000) Social Life of Information
Fielding, R T (2000) Architectural Styles and the Design of Network-based Software Architectures, PhD-dissertation, University of California
John Hagel, John Seely Brown and Scott Durchslag (2002) Orchestrating Loosely Coupled Business Processes: The Secret to Successful Collaboration (PDF)
ETA and Implementation – later.
Any suggestions for more to put on the list??
