Len Fehskens of The Open Group writes recently that enterprise architecture needs more to be about the whole enterprise — that may mean Enterprise Architecture (EA) may move to the business side. Let’s face it, EA is still largely on the IT side, at this writing.
“Enterprise architecture ought to be about the entire enterprise, because that’s what the name implies. If it’s really about IT, it ought to be called enterprise IT architecture,” writes Fehskens in a blog.
Fehskens wonders too, if EA will eventually go down in the record book as a ’soft’ discipline or a ‘hard’ discipline. Stay tuned. More to come.
