The discussion itself got stuck on how the Zachman framework is a full architectural framework that gos beyond technology. Yep. Okay, what next?
I'll throw up a few of my (still unprepared) thoughts here and see what comments I get.
- Architecture is about designing in future capability, not delivering it
- The differnece between enterprise architecture and business architecture is only a matter of terminology. Or is it? Mabe the business architure is less focused on the technical?
- If you put up an architecture it becomes the baseline for change, and variations from it have to be justified (to some degree)
- This means archicture should be an ongoing role and should generallly be flexible and open enough to accomodate new ideas
- Like anything, context matters a lot
- BAs are great candidates for architecture roles as they evolve through technology and business design
- Why doens't architecture drive more business cases?
